Sushi On Me brings more energy to its omakase servings than many NYC clubs or house parties. Between the unlimited sake and the chefs’ antics, the $89 cash-only price tag for the 15-course fishy feast feels more appropriate as an entry fee than the cost of what is functionally dinner and a show. There are flamethrowers, uni shots, raucous singing, and other antics galore while, simultaneously, sashimi and nigiri are served piece by piece, their presentation upstaged only by their flavor and freshness.
