Ken and I have been making an effort to eat in the neighborhood more because there are so many great restaurants in Gramercy that we haven’t tried even though we’ve lived here for four years! On Saturday, we visited Yama, a sushi restaurant that’s on the basement level of a townhouse on Irving. We always walk by Yama but have never been inside, mostly because we have our favorites for both delivery (Nomado 33) and sit down (Neta, Sushi Yasuda and Morimoto to name a few).

We decided to order the sushi salad, the sushi for two and some rolls. I wasn’t super hungry and probably should’ve asked more questions because we saw the sushi chefs behind the counter preparing two very large plates and realized that was the sushi for two:


The sushi for two and our rolls in the background:


There was a lot of food to get through – the sushi for two comes with a few rolls and nigiri. We also ordered an eel roll, a roll with tuna and salmon and another specialty roll that we definitely didn’t need. We ate about a quarter of it (the sushi for two also comes with miso soup and a salad) and were too full to keep eating. The food wasn’t particularly good; it was a little on the bland side (even with soy sauce, wasabi and ginger) and all of the fish tasted the same.

We have been trying to add more neighborhood restaurants to our rotation, but I don’t think Yama makes the list.
