    https://collive.com/high-end-roll-masters-sushi-finally-opens-in-crown-heights/

    Been meaning to post about this as itís been around for a week or two, didnít get around to it. Delicious sushi, decent value but more expensive than what CH is used to. Sucks that they charge you for sweet/spicy/wasabi sauces, it is what it is.

    Anyone get any of their bigger options like platters or the sushi cake/pie thingy?

    Where is this located? Which Hashgocho?

    I actually welcome charging for the sauces, potentially less garbage to deal with.

    Full disclosure: I dislike sushi (not the food, but the cultural aspects).

    Only ever been there for an event, but I think it's not an upscale restaurant because it is a bar, not because of quality.

    Being that after every snow storm the pedestrian corners usually are left unshoveled and is a huge pain for those with strollers, perhaps the Jewish community council should hire someone to keep the pedestrian corners of all the crossroads on Kingston Ave (from empire to Lincoln). Is this something that they would even do? It would definitely benefit the entire community.
