Known For

The lowdown

This mellow spot stands out for its casualness amid Union Square’s menagerie of congested, boisterous eateries. The Hotter Than Summer roll blends yellowtail with a kick of jalapeño, and slightly tangy Eye Candy rolls have a hint of caviar complemented by a sweet finish. Various tempura and smoked-salmon rolls court the sushi-averse with familiar flavors. For cooked food, heaping portions of salmon teriyaki with a healthy dose of sauce plus miso soup and rice is a filling, budget option.
