Joseph Ulloa, once a regular at the Port Washington branch of this New Orleans Japanese restaurant, brings the chain to NYC with partner Richard Volpe. Sushi chefs stand sentinel behind a white-marble bar anchoring the 2,800-square-foot space. If the selection of nouveau rolls—like the Hawaii 5-0 (coconut-battered shrimp, cream cheese, mango and avocado)—is too dizzying, take a breather in the high-design restrooms, where Jackie Chan flicks are projected on the floor.
