This new Japanese spot, which shares kitchen facilities with the Chinese Ivy’s Café, surpasses the other neighborhood sushi spots in quality, price, and presentation. In fact, when Chinese president Jiang Zemin and 130 of his associates checked into the Waldorf-Astoria last summer, Ivy/O-I-Shi-I delivered their meals to the hotel—3,900 in all—for ten days straight. “I personally only slept half-hour for ten days,” says owner Ivy Lin. They do a mean beef negimaki here; the sushi arrives fresh; the banana filled with red beans and fried with honey flour is amazing. And O-I-Shi-I honors special requests from both the Japanese and the Chinese menus.
