There are a lot of things going on at this large, corner restaurant in Long Island City hawking American food and sushi alongside furniture and artwork. The hostess stand lies among mix-matched chairs and chandeliers with hanging price tags, as the restaurant doubles as a bazaar (Get the name now?). Venture further to find a large, circular, wooden bar flanked by a flat screen to the right, and a sushi bar to the left. Random paintings—a nude next to a cityscape and the Queensboro Bridge, for example—hang over orange cushioned banquettes in the back. Even the bathroom is a mash-up of styles with faded Life magazine covers on the walls and black stones in the sinks. The menu is equally eclectic. Beyond a page of classic sushi rolls, there are large-portion American entrées reminiscent of the venue's former incarnation as the diner Cup, from short ribs to grilled snapper and sides of salty fingerling potatoes. Live jazz weekly makes this place worth a trek, and a winning bread pudding adds sweet impetus.
