“Once you’ve eaten here, you’ll be disappointed in sushi anywhere else.” - Zagat raves

Nisen Sushi, a contemporary Japanese restaurant opened by co-owners Robert Beer and Tom Lam in August 2000. Zagat raves “Once you’ve eaten here, you’ll be disappointed in sushi anywhere else.” Richard Scholem of The New York Times urges gourmands that Executive Head Sushi Chef Alvin Wang is not to be missed, “the headliners at Nisen are the terrific special rolls, and the weekly special fish flown in from the world famous Tokyo Tsukiji market.”
