Translated literally to “something new,” Saishin is serving up sushi omakase with a view from the top of the Gansevoort Hotel. Choose from a la carte ($12 to $26), 12 courses ($135), or 15 courses ($155), topped off with a complimentary glass of sake for every diner. The cocktail list itself is also sake heavy, with more than 10 bottles to choose from and our personal favorite, the sake margarita.
