Fans of high-end sushi haven't seen much new blood in the past few years, making this Japanese eatery a hotly anticipated project. Hiro Sawatari (Sushi Yasuda) handles the raw stuff (with The Story of Sushi author Trevor Corson consulting); offerings include a hand roll stuffed with crispy kanpachi, pickled onions, coriander and avocado. If you can't get a spot at the eight-seat sushi bar, grab a table in the dining room to explore the Japanese small-plates menu. Be sure to look up: Artist Jim Drain designed the glass, brass and wood mobile dangling overhead.
