A minimalist vibe pervades this snug space, outfitted with a handful of banquettes and wooden tables. Though the menu features a few riffs on European standbys, such as a special starter of mushroom risotto with duck breast and wasabi, the main draw is the top-notch sushi. The sashimi platter brims with eight varieties of immaculate raw seafood, including luscious scallops. As with most Japanese spots, the dessert offerings are paltry, but if it’s sushi you’re craving, this East Village addition shouldn’t be missed.
