Profile

This venue is closed.

Now that dragon rolls have become ubiquitous in Korean delis, it follows that a sushi joint would devote its business to delivery and takeout. Yet, without a fine presentation, at least some of the delight in eating sushi is lost. This Greenpoint spot does pay some attention to aesthetics, with a blackened pressed tin wall surrounding the counter and rotating artwork on view, but although large wooden tables are available, there’s no reason for anyone to dine inside—Styrofoam plates and plastic sauce cups are too depressing. The basic sushi itself suffers too, with a cold, tacky rice distracting from the fish. At the center, the salmon and avocado roll is smooth and appealing, and the spicy tuna well seasoned, but yellowtail with jalapeno packs little flavor. Among hot dishes, chicken teriyaki-don holds its own, with juicy pieces of meat in a sauce that’s only a tad too sweet. Low prices and convenience are the main selling points, and it’s possible they’ll keep this place afloat.
