Once upon a time, not too long ago, New Yorkers would share a milkshake at a diner counter and take their relationship from there. Then, we entered the era of the bar counter crawl. Now, date night has found itself a new counter: that of the modern sushi bar, a hotbed of room-temperature delicacies and first date-worthy fare.
Among the finest of such sushi counters is Neta's, which offers restaurant-goers what the Times calls
"unusually well-made sushi," sampler menus, small plates, and some serious access to its kitchen.
Neta 61 West 8th Street, New York, NY 10011
