This venue is closed.

This unadorned storefront puts its energy into spot-on fish and chips (on the menu) and creative sushi (off). Although the one-room space is barely bigger than a nearby Cornell Med dorm room (and just as plain), its up-to-twenty diners are likely to include Yorkville roommates, Sotheby’s curators, and New York Hospital docs and smocks. The menu isn’t fancy so much as assured: teriyaki platters, salads, wraps, sushi rolls, and grilled salmon. Yet even with the properly crispy deep-fried fish beckoning, many Cork & Fin regulars order off the menu by requesting sushi creations that are as plump, colorful, and inspired as any on the Upper East Side. Chef Jondvu’s spicy-salmon number is topped with eel and rolled not in nori but in prosciutto; his white tuna may arrive wrapped in basil. Just as inviting is a wine selection with all bottles under $20.
