I was pretty sure I could avoid stinky alliums at a sushi restaurant; unfortunately, David doesn't like fish all that much. But, he said if I could find a sushi joint that served fried chicken, he would be all for it. Lucky for me, many Japanese restaurants serve chicken katsu - fried chicken cutlet. I googled my way around Greenwich Village and settled on Sushi Yawa, near Washington Square Park, which seemed to have a good variety of fish and non-fish choices.
After the rather large meal I ate at Ma Peche earlier in the day, I was glad I suggested sushi over, say, a burger, which would have been too heavy and greasy. I started out with two pieces of "white tuna," aka escolar. I really love the mild buttery-ness of this fish; Sushi Yawa's was very fresh and I loved that there was a larger proportion of fish to rice.

While not earth-shattering or particularly interesting, Sushi Yawa offers pretty good food, especially when they stick to the sushi. The prices there seemed reasonable as well. Our meal was in the $40 range.
