Successful French-Japanese fusion makes this sepia-hued eatery stand out from Astoria’s armada of Greek tavernas. Arresting sushi rolls are marked by complex flavors (mango, chili pepper, a sweet balsamic reduction) and unanticipated textures (crunchy potato strings and toasted almonds), while mains incl ude a succulent entrée of braised duck leg and velvety breast in a tart-cherry sauce. Desserts also impress: Inquire about the flavor of the seasonal bread pudding.
