Amami, located on busy Nassau Avenue, is the latest from the Ako Sushi team. Like that restaurant, the sushi here is fresh and affordable, with standard rolls under $7 and the fancier ones hovering around the $15 mark. The menu is a mix of simply prepared fish and casual Japanese comfort food like soy-glazed pork buns and ramen in a red miso broth. With its sleek décor and long bar, it offers a nice space to gather for carefully made cocktails and reliable, straightforward Japanese dishes. Though the restaurant is open for lunch and dinner daily, the real highlight is the weekend brunch menu, which covers all the bases. There are a variety of Japanese curries with an assortment of vegetables and proteins, and for those looking for something slightly more familiar, waffles made with organic red adzuki beans.
