The owner of a South Miami sushi bar relocated to the East Village to open this Japanese restaurant and brought with him his specialty rolls like the Volcano (crab, smoked salmon, and cream cheese with spicy mayo and conch) and the Kani Su (crab, avocado, and masago rolled in cucumber). To round out the menu, there’s sweet-potato tempura, chicken yakitori, soba and udon.Recommended Dishes
