The raw fish is excellent, both traditional choices and "new style" sushi of the type promulgated by Nobu and its imitators. From the former category we enjoyed perfect toro sashimi, tender belly tuna shot through with fat like blocks of pink marble; from the latter, horse mackerel sushi topped with a mound of seared garlic salt, a perfect complement to the fish's strong flavor. Cooked entrées like salmon teriyaki and pork katsu were a disappointment, competently rendered but with no special flair. Best part: open till 3 a.m.
