This cool-conscious place focuses on small plates of fresh tofu sprinkled with chili oil and peanuts; and prosciutto topped with ponzu sauce, crunchy toasted shallots and charred asparagus. The always-fresh sushi is simply impeccable, yet the biggest surprise is the service: Unlike across the street at überstylized sister restaurant Ping Pong, the servers here actually smile.
