We celebrate Mr. T's birthday with an omakase every year. It used to be our annual meal at Sushi Yasuda but since he went back to Japan we've been trying out new places and this year it was Cagen; the cozy sushi den located inside the old East Village Kajitsu space. We sat at the eight person sushi bar right in front of Chef and owner Toshio Tomita and let him work his magic.
Cagen offers both a Kappo Omakase and Sushi Omakase of which we went the latter. To begin a cool summer Gazpacho with shrimp and cucumber.
