Best Dishes Catapila roll; chawan mushi; white tuna tataki with miso.

Jazz piano pours from the sound system in this dining room known for such creatively fashioned rolls as catapila—stuffed with eel, draped with avocado, and fanned out like a caterpillar. Beyond the usual sushi and sashimi are offbeat finds including chawan mushi, a delicious soupy custard with seafood, and thin slices of white-tuna tataki with miso.
