Like the majority of college students I'm on a budget. Also like the majority of college students I love sushi. If you need to save a few pennies, have a good time, and scratch that sushi itch in the process, I've got the place for you. Friends Sushi & Bento Place on W 39th St. is a tremendous way to eat some fantastic sushi while not breaking the bank. How is this possible? Well, every Monday during lunch and dinner hours Friends has several specials including $3.99 rolls, (6 pieces), and $1.00 Nigiri that will make your tummy write you a personalized thank you card. Now, although the selections of specials do not include their entire menu, any selection will be more than satisfying. My personal favorites include the Crunchy Spicy Salmon, Spicy Crab, and BBQ Eel rolls. I also must mention that I was never a fan of plain fish until I tried their Nigiri. One piece of their Smoked Salmon will change your outlook on life. For lack of a better description their Smoked Salmon tastes like the best piece of bologna ever crafted by the hands of Mother Nature. The way it effortlessly melts in your mouth is simply blissful. The only downside to this entire dining experience is the inevitable moment when your plate is turned into a ghost town. The atmosphere is authentic and sophisticated while maintaining a relaxed attitude. If dinner and a show is more your thing try grabbing a seat at the bar to watch the sushi being crafted. My advice would be to watch your calendars and get there early.
