I came to this place with really high expectations and left really disappointed. The decor is pretty and the vibe is quiet and fine, but the food is a major disappointment. Too much fusion. The rolls were mixed (the tuna was good, the eggplant appetizer was terrible). From the mains we had the wagyu short rib which was overcooked and tasted like rubber and the udon which was too cheesy and unbalanced. Will not return.
My wife and I have been going to Arami for a very long time. We think it is one of, if not the single best place for sushi in the city. I am very picky when it comes to sushi. Arami is one of only 3 or 4 places I'll even eat sushi. It's just consistently better. We love the spicy tako (octopus) roll.
This place is NOT better than Momotaro, Kai-Zan or Dokku.   The Nigiri was all tough, chewy and not at all fresh.   The rolls were somewhat better and would be what I would suggest if someone eats here.    Service was very good which I appreciate but we were one of four tables on the night we went.  This is a One and Done for us.   Sad as this restaurant came recommended and is in our neighborhood.   Sadly a waste of money and calories.
