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

Some people think Mishima dishes the best sushi in town—it’s certainly the best in Murray Hill. This seemingly pedestrian spot, with its basic blond-wood decor and simple sushi bar, offers more than the same old, same roll: The spider roll’s soft-shell crab is swathed in spicy jalapeño-infused roe, a rarity in NYC sushi dens. Tangy aji (a form of mackerel) is flown in daily from Japan and coupled with scallions and a fiery mustard. Not every sushi staple is gussied up: Sweet shrimp is rightly fresh and simple, and the toro (fatty tuna), though understated, is a buttery, well-marbled delight.
