Sushi Dojo has been serving customers on First Ave. in the East Village of New York City since 2013. And yes, the pandemic affected us too. But, we adapt and move on.
Whatever Japanese taste your craving, the tri restaurant chain brought to you by the owners of Sushi Dojo have got you covered from the east-side to the west-side of New York City. When you think of Japanese cuisine you probably think sushi. But that is only a part of this great traditional cuisine.
David Bouhadana Profiled in News NY 1 and the article revisits his beginnings, and the emergence of his restaurant Sushi Dojo in the east village of NYC.

Good question. The Eater did an article on Sushi Dojo where they focused in on our top chef and co-owner David Bouhadana. He has been confusing the entire industry since the grand opening of Sushi Dojo in the summer of 2013.
The restaurant and sushi bar has been attracting a steady flow of great press, been named to the “top” and “best of” lists — like the top 35 sushi bars in America, and top sushi bar New York, and David was named as one of the “30 under 30” in ZAGAT.
Top sushi chef David Bouhadana was recently interviewed in a four minute video by ZAGAT. What makes Sushi Dojo one of the top sushi bars in New York City (NYC)? Sushi Dojo has repeatedly been named to sushi “top lists” and “best of” lists by ZAGAT, Thrillist, the Village Voice (who referred to Sushi Dojo as a raw fish temple), the New York Times (who stated it “is sushi worth getting crazy for”), and the Haberdasher Standard who called it the “best sushi restaurant in Manhattan.” So what is the magic of this little place tucked away on 1st avenue in the east village of New York? It might just be a French-Moroccan Jewish kid from Florida.
