If you need a reminder that the Japanese are just way cooler, this tiny, minimalist sushi shop should jog your memory. There’s no sashimi served here, so check out the creative honey roll—which flavors tuna with mustard, wraps it in crunchy tempura flakes and adds just a touch of honey—or more traditional rolls like a creamy spicy scallop or a simple hamachi roll. Too boring? Sides like wasabi mashed potatoes kick things up.
