Oona Tempest was one of the only female sushi apprentices in New York, and as she grew into an accomplished sushi chef, remained a rarity behind the sushi counter. In 2016 at only 23 years of age Tempest was named one of Zagat’s top 30 chefs under 30. Tempest continues to buck the trend and reinforce a place for herself in the tradition-oriented sushi world, bringing her own unique Omakase experience to New Yorkers now at Sushi by Bae

One of the best omakase sushi values in the city: $110 for 15 perfectly crafted pieces served at the perfect pace. Menu changes based on the season and market availability. Oona Tempest is a wonder and a perfect host - it feels less like a restaurant and more like you're joining her in her apartment for an intimate dinner party. Just brilliant.

Overpriced. If this was $50 like sushi by bou, we have no complaints (although we think sushi by bou is a lot better). The firmness of the rice was uneven, and I think some fish were left sitting on the cutting board too long. Sea urchin was not good at all...had no taste. Although, I guess the taste was not too bad as compared to other random sushi places but we had higher expectations considering the price.
The chef was wearing a watch and hair band on her wrists, and also her sleeves were not tucked up to her elbow which was all very very disturbing while watching her make our sushi. I have never seen sushi chefs having anything up to the elbow. She was also touching her cell at where she cooked. It was nice she was interacting with customers, but her hand stops when she talks, so it was a lot of waiting....

Extraordinary omakase experience with expertly crafted pieces of fish, delicately seasoned on warm beds of soft rice.

Oona was great! Service was polite but clumsy. Wait staff needs to learn how to operate discretely in a sushi restaurant.

Nice casual atmosphere that differs from your traditional omakase place. The chef is very friendly and helps make it a really pleasant experience. They seem very proud to be flying their fish from Japan but unfortunately most of their flavors are masked by overly present yuzu or other sauces. Even for the pieces without particular sauce- I did not find the tastes or flavor particularly remarkable, for the price.
