Only consistant tuna I have found is flown in to Florida from off Hawian Coast. It is pricey but excellent, better then the so called Sushi Grade. because 95% of time it is uniform in texture, taste, and color.

Although I'm back in Cali i spent 5 years in NYC.  I'm not sure what you mean by modern plating tools, but this is what i can think of:

Black Garlic. Either check out Kalustyans on Lex and 28th. http://www.kalustyans.com/ or get in touch with Behroush from Saffron King http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1122867218   He carries amazing exotic ingredients of amazing quality, although you will pay for it.

As far as tools I always use Broadway Panhandle or J.B. Prince.

All the restaurants I worked at in the Danny Meyer group used Pierless Fish Co.  They deliver to every legit restaurant. Bobby the owner is a perfectionist just like any chef i know.

Hope it helps
