The Best Sushi in New York City: The Excel Spreadsheet

Epicurious has recently redone their site and they now have a food column called The Corner Table. They recently got the scoop on a (brilliantly) obsessive Wall Street Stockbroker's pride and joy -- a 91 line excel spreadsheet ranking sushi restaurants in Manhattan. This may be old news to Manhattan-ites just like the law clerk who wrote the long brief on take out restaurants but I think it's great. Don't ask me how this guy manages to eat sushi sometimes up to 6 times per week (I like it too, but not that much) but the thing is a work of anal-retentive culinary obsession that has to be seen to believed. And lest you think I'm badmouthing it, I should tell you its already on my PDA for handy access next time I'm in the Big Apple.

Here's the story.

Here's a PDF of the spreadsheet.
