PLAN DATE: WEDS / JAN. 16
This plan contains fancy sushi and fancy art, for the couple who wants a fancy Friday night. Starting at the Gagosian Gallery where several stimulating exhibits are currently on display, and finishing at Sushi of Gari, a staple on the Upper East Side for fresh, uniquely prepared Japanese food.
The Gagosian is open from Monday through Saturday from 10-6, so start here before heading to sushi. Their newest exhibit, Richard Artschwager’s Primary Sources is on from January 16th–February 23rd. The late Artschwager’s art has been variously described as “pop, minimal, and conceptual”.
Next up, sushi. Gari, after traveling from Japan to New York in 1978 to help a friend open a restaurant, soon realized that Americans weren’t eating sushi the right way. Spoiler alert: you’re not supposed to dunk the whole piece in soy sauce. He made a special sauce to put directly on sushi so novices would no longer make the mistake.
