We like our rice crispy and our mayo spicy. Check out our fave rolls in NYC.

1. Zuma
This NYC newcomer exploded onto the scene just this month with its gorgeous bi-level, tri-kitchen Madison Avenue space. Luxury Attaché was among the first on the scene to preview the international izakaya icon's first New York venture, and of course, to sample the spicy tuna roll. Zuma's inventive version features green chili sauce and tobiko, flying fish roe. This one's a must-try.

2. Nobu New York
Chef Nobu Matsuhisa's flagship is a culinary mecca, drawing foodies from across the island (and globe for that matter) with his signature new Japanese cuisine. Recognized as an industry innovator, Chef Matsuhisa's spicy tuna roll is particularly phenomenal, composed of bigeye tuna, spicy mayo, scallions, and flash-fried crispy rice.

3. Blue Ribbon Sushi
In addition to boasting the best shrimp shumai in town, the Bromberg brothers take the cake with their spicy tuna roll, perfected by partner and sushi master Toshi Ueki. Chilled tuna and tempura flakes on a cucumber inside-out roll is a winning combination, making Blue Ribbon's sushi sister one of our top picks in the city.

4. Sushi of Gari
Sushi of Gari's classic take on the spicy tuna roll means business. This notable Japanese spot is both authentic and elegant, helmed by sushi master Masatoshi Gari Sugio, serving up the freshest of sushi imported from hand-selected purveyors. Sushi of Gari's always a winner in our book.

5. Lure Fishbar
Veering from the traditional Japanese sushi setting, this pick's spicy tuna rolls offer a unique take on the norm. A pillow of crispy sushi rice comes topped with fresh tuna, jalepeño, and nori - an amuse-bouche second to none.
