Dang. This was one of my early go-to spots. Back in the day it was fairly authentic Japanese place (ie not Chinese or Korean-operated) that offered much more than the usual sushi-tempura-teriyaki "gaijin" menu. Then a couple years ago they got shuttered by DOH, and when they returned were never quite the same. I went back a couple of times and noticed some of the waitstaff were Chinese. Oh well, I will always remember Go for its 'sake chazuke', deep-fried squid legs in ponzu sauce, plentiful draft beers and funky Japanese servers.
@Anonymous: If you've never been there, a good substitute for the old Go is the upstairs restaurant Village Yokocho, 8 Stuyvesant Square (near the corner of Third Ave and 9th Street). Their deep fried squid legs are fabulous, as is pretty much everything else on the seriously legit menu.
Very sad. Go always had very reasonably priced and excellent vegetarian rolls.
As far as I know the place has changed ownership like 2-3 years back. They used to be the only place in town to serve tenmusu a nagoya style fried shrimp rice ball, and it was better than some of the ones I ate in nagoya.
I heard from the owner that the rent fee is sooo high, so even dough many people came, love and support GO , it is not easy to keep the restaurant. He was very up set about the unusual high rent fee.I hope he will reopen GO somewhere good place.
Does anyone know where any of the chefs went to work? I miss the jalapeno spicy sauce so much.
