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. Written by Molly Mocker, the title is “Zagat: Sushi Dojo Sets New Expectations.” She asks him questions about his roots, his sushi education, his philosophy, and the kind of place he wanted Sushi Dojo to be.
Sushi is an authentic Japanese dish, which consists of cooked vinegar-fermented rice and is commonly topped by seasonal fresh seafood and fish. Sashimi, or raw fish which is sliced, differs from Sushi. Sashimi or fresh sushi should be delicate, clean and light.
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.
