Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

You won’t leave this neighborhood sushi joint and then feel hungry two hours later. It’s simply too hard to resist the words “crunch” and “tempura” beckoning from all parts of the menu. The fried tofu is mesmerizing: Papery-thin bonito flakes flutter atop lightly battered, custardy bean curd. Order the specialty rolls with balance in mind: The lush lobster tempura roll with asparagus, caviar and mayo needs a light counterpoint, such as the riceless kyuri maki of eel, caviar and crabmeat rolled in cucumber. Finish with a creamy fried banana inside a crisp batter shell or a scoop of fried green-tea ice cream in a thick, cakey mochi crust.
