Time Out says

Best known for vodka, Malört and other spirits, CH Distillery is now home to a sushi restaurant in the back of its building. Jinsei Motto, originally conceived as a pop-up project during the pandemic by owners Andrew Choi and Patrick Bouaphanh, offers diners a curated assortment of quality seafood to pair with their Malört Spritzes. While the omakase menu is the recommended course of action, the a la carte options are equally noteworthy. From rich pieces of soy-marinated salmon and uni-and-toro nigiri to a vegetarian-friendly 1Up roll filled with truffle mayo and shiitake and enoki mushrooms, even the most seasoned sushi eaters will be impressed.
