At a time when most sushi bars seem obsessed with gimmicky maki rolls—both overthought and oversauced—the selections at this low-key spot lean toward simple, authentic Japanese fare, prepared with great skill. Nothing comes cheap, whether it’s a warming bowl of sukiyaki noodles in a gentle beef broth or a divine miso-glazed grilled duck appetizer, but rest assured that you’ll get precisely the quality you pay for, especially in the chef’s signature sushi platter, which shows what expertly sourced seafood can taste like in the hands of a master.
