Japanese corner spot Suzume's owners did their space up in thrift-store style, from a wood-panel bar to a chandelier that looks like it could have appeared on a late-seventies Stevie Nicks album cover. A small menu embodies the same nonchalance: Basic sushi rolls are fuller and more flavorful than most, with spicy salmon and avocado melting together beneath a mild mayo sauce enlivened by charred shishito peppers. The best item here is also the most basic: House ramen consists of delicious chunks of braised, fatty Berkshire pork belly and tasty thin wheat noodles. Individual small plates don't work as well: A strong ginger yogurt sauce masks the spicy flavor of tiny, butter-coated wings. An uneven house cocktail list features a unique sake hot toddy alongside oddities like the “Muddy Manny,” a meeting of tamarind, celery seed, and chili sauce in a tall glass rimmed with peanut butter.
