Profile

This venue is closed.

Le Miu’s pedigree is impressive, with Nobu 57, Megu, and Moto on the résumés of its four chefs. The restaurant takes its cue from those places, serving innovative, top-flight sushi in modernist digs. The chefs take pride in daily specials, with platters and prix-fixe menus that highlight the current catch. Fashionable foam, made of white soy, adds a creamy aspect to the raw bar’s fish tartars. Foam returns in the kitchen’s black cod, which comes in a pocket of savory philo crust. Straight-up rolls are competent; more exciting are experimental dishes, like sun-dried tomato and mozzarella accompanying squares of spicy salmon sushi, or soy gel on smoky sea urchin. Departing from the mega-Asian trend, the space itself is intimate: Banquettes run the length of the room, across from a row of tables for two, and worn wooden floors soften the industrial aspect of exposed ceiling vents and iron front doors. Electric yellow and lime-green lighting illuminates rotating wall art, and tableware is stylish, with tall silver water decanters and chopstick rests in the form of stylized rabbits. In a nod to Avenue A priorities, the drinking bar is up front and the sushi bar in back, an arrangement that minimizes distractions for serious eaters.
