This place knows how to exploit sushi’s sex appeal while maintaining a low-key vibe. Curvaceous morsels of tuna, yellowtail, salmon and more are served in a sultry dining room full of slick minimalist furniture and tableware. The focus is great-quality raw fish, but a few liberties are taken, and with success. Ceviche maki pairs lime-marinated scallop with mango, cilantro and jalapeño, and salmon gets stuffed in a spring roll, fried and served with green curry dipping sauce.
