45. Sushi Nakazawa
Wags accepts an invitation with new Axe Capital psychologist, Gus, to Sushi Nakazawa in Greenwich Village, the omakase sushi restaurant in New York City opened by the disciple of Jiro, from Sukiyabashi Jiro, the 10-seat Japanese restaurant in the Tokyo subway and the subject of the documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi.
There, Wags loses his cool to younger finance bros who are talking on a cell phone and dipping the sushi into a “bath” of soy sauce, with ginger on top. “It is already precisely sauced,” he says, and emphasizes that the ginger is used to “clean the palette” between pieces. A fight nearly ensues, with one of them saying “Chill out Mr. Miyagi.” Wags explains that he won’t to the “f*cking heathens.” And in a reference to Jiro Dreams of Sushi and Nakazawa himself who is in the scene, Wags says, “This man is an artist. He had to spend 10 years how to make the tamago, the egg. THE EGG. Your expense accounts don’t entitle you to f*ck his art up the ass.” The fight stops when the bros realize its Wags from Axe Capital and apologize.
