Sushi Spots You Have To Try White Plains, NY

September 20th, 2022 by

Many of the best-loved sushi components are at their optimum quality during the cooler months. Fall and winter, for example, are typically the peak seasons for tuna, salmon, sea bream, shrimp, certain mackerel, and even bonito. So to take advantage of the upcoming seasons, we’ve compiled a list of the five best sushi spots in and around White Plains, New York.

Shiki Sushi & Yakitori

Shiki Sushi & Yakitori is a cozy establishment that opened in 2015. A glance at the menu reveals a number of soups and American-style rolls common to a lot of sushi establishments, but a deeper analysis indicates a greater depth to the offerings. The salads, for one thing, are more diverse than what you’re likely to find elsewhere. For another, there are five omakase options, where the diner puts their meal entirely in the chef’s control.

The true point of differentiation with Shiki, though, is the yakitori — skewers, typically of chicken. At Shiki, the yakitori offerings extend beyond chicken, with options such as eggplant, shiitake mushrooms, and shishito. For the optimum experience, consider a sampling of multiple yakitori along with one of the omakase options.

Address: 187 Main St., White Plains, NY 10601.

Contact: Reach Shiki by phone at 914-288-0070.

Hours of Operation: Shiki operates six days a week, from Tuesday to Sunday, but the hours vary. Tuesday–Thursday hours are 11:30 a.m.–10 p.m., while Friday hours go until 11 p.m. Weekdays include a service break from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Saturday hours are noon–11 p.m., while Sundays are noon–10 p.m. There are no service breaks during the weekend.

Ichiro

The menu at Ichiro is likely to appeal to both purists and fusionists alike. The sushi and sashimi offerings include all of the favorites — mackerel, tuna, salmon, yellowtail, eel, toro — which you can choose a la carte. If you’d like to put your meal in the hands of the chef, you can choose from the three omakase options or the generous combination platters, such as the 11-piece tuna- or salmon-lover platter or the 15-piece chirashi.

For lovers of unconventional sushi, the Special Roll menu features imaginative creations like the Ichiro Sushi Sandwich (spicy tuna, lobster salad, avocado, tomago, kani, and sesame soy paper) and the Out of Control Roll (a roll of tuna, salmon, yellowtail, and asparagus topped with seared tuna, salmon, and yellowtail and spicy miso mayonnaise).

Address: 80 Mamaroneck Ave., White Plains, NY 10601.

Contact: Ichiro is reachable by phone at 914-437-8688. The restaurant maintains a social media page as well, the link to which is available on its contact page.

Hours of Operation: Ichiro operates seven days a week: 11:30 a.m.–10 p.m. on Monday–Thursday, 11:30 a.m.–11 p.m. on Friday–Saturday, and 1–10 p.m. on Sunday.

Haiku Asian Bistro

Haiku Asian Bistro isn’t strictly a sushi spot. The menu spans multiple Asian cuisines, including Indian, Malaysian, Vietnamese, Indonesian, and Chinese. That being said, the majority of the menu real estate is sushi, and the sushi doesn’t disappoint. The classic sashimi and nigiri options are present, including yellowtails, tunas, salmons, eel, and sea urchin. You also have all the popular American-style rolls.

Haiku isn’t afraid to get playful, offering signature items like the Incredible Hulk Roll (yellowtail, tuna, and jalapeno inside white marble seaweed, topped with guacamole, wasabi mayonnaise, and black caviar), yellowtail ceviche, toro tartar, and a fresh tuna pizza.

Address: 149 Mamaroneck Ave., White Plains, NY 10601.

Contact: Call Haiku Asian Bistro at 914-644-8887. Its website also includes a link for online ordering.

Hours of Operation: Haiku Asian Bistro is open seven days a week 11:30 a.m.–9:45 on Monday–Wednesday, 11:30 a.m.–10 p.m. on Thursday, 11:30 a.m.–11 p.m. on Friday, 12:30–11 p.m. on Saturday, and 12:30–9:15 p.m. on Sunday.

Sushi Tatsu

The most obvious distinguishing characteristic of Sushi Tatsu is that it’s primarily a takeout restaurant. Dine-in is an option, but space is rather limited. What isn’t limited, though, is the menu, which offers a tremendous variety of traditional, Americanized, and downright novel sushi options.

It’s in the Special Rolls section of the menu that Sushi Tatsu gets truly creative, with such items as the lox roll (salmon and cream cheese), Kentucky roll (fried chicken), Texas roll (BBQ beef), and Mexican roll (yellowtail and jalapeno). If you’re more a purist, go for any of the expertly prepared options in the à la carte or Traditional Rolls section, the latter of which includes options not commonly seen in American sushi joints (e.g., ume shisho and negihama maki).

Address: 522 Mamaroneck Ave., White Plains, NY 10605.

Contact: To get in touch with Sushi Tatsu, call 914-428-2460, email [email protected], or drop a message through one of its social media pages (links available on the restaurant’s home page). You can also order online through the website.

Hours of Operation: Sushi Tatsu is open from Wednesday to Monday, 11 a.m.–6 p.m.

Kyo Sushi

Rounding out our list is an entry from nearby Hartsdale: Kyo Sushi. The cozy, minimalist interior features a sushi counter and tables arranged along the wall. This is largely a no-frills establishment that focuses on the freshness of its ingredients, but there are a few signatures and relatively uncommon inclusions on the menu, such as takosu (octopus salad), tuna tataki, the Hartsdale Roll (a filling of sweet potato tempura, topped with lobster salad, flying fish roe, and spicy sweet mayonnaise).

Kyo Sushi doesn’t neglect the importance of dessert, either. If you’ve never had a tempura ice cream or cheesecake tempura — add that to your to-do list, head over to Kyo, and check it off.

Address: 17 E. Hartsdale Ave., Hartsdale, NY 10530.

Contact: Call Kyo Sushi at 914-682-6688.

Hours of Operation: Kyo Sushi operates from Tuesday to Sunday. Tuesday–Thursday hours are noon–9 p.m., Friday–Saturday hours are noon–10 p.m., and Sunday hours are 1–9 p.m.
