What you need to know: “From Ginza to the World” says master sushi chef Masaki Saito of the expansion plans for Sushi Ginza Onodera. Sushi dining doesn’t get any finer than in Ginza, the Fifth Avenue of Tokyo, so it stands to reason that when LEOC Co. LTD, the ownership of Sushi Ginza Onodera, decided to come to New York they’d open on Fifth Avenue. A team of master sushi chefs led by Chef Masaki Saito recently of Onodera in Hong Kong,  will man this omakase sushi restaurant, crafting every piece of sushi individually in front of guests. No expense has been spared to transform the lofty space into a comfortable and elegant 32-seat sushi restaurant (16 seats at the sushi bar and 16 at tables) designed by And Yo & Co., featuring Bizen-yaki tiles one of the six types of ancient Japanese pottery styles from Bizen, a city of pottery facing the Katakami Bay in southeastern Okayama; an Oya stone wall (made from lava and ash) and light maple wood finishes. Sushi Ginza has locations in London, Honolulu, Paris, and Hong Kong. A Los Angeles location will open in West Hollywood, summer 2016.
