Sushi Mambo may not promise anything unique with its cookie-cutter interior—a spacious dining room with prints of samurais and geishas, and a sushi bar lit by paper lanterns and strings of twinkling lights. But adding a little local flavor to its user-friendly menu (replete with color photographs) are several specialty rolls named for nearby streets. Most of them, like the hefty Carmine and Bleecker Rolls, pack in a half-dozen ingredients to little effect. Standards like California and tuna rolls are more reliable as are the chicken teriyaki, the udon noodles, and the seaweed salad. The house dessert— a softball-sized scoop of green tea or vanilla ice cream flash-fried in tempura flakes then topped with whipped cream and fresh blueberries—might be the best big thing on the menu.Film Set
A scene from the 2005 movie Prime was filmed in Sushi Mambo, a fact displayed by a half-dozen posters adorning the restaurant’s walls.Recommended Dishes
