Mai Sushi

16 E. 41st St. New York, NY 10017 | East 40s | 212-400-8880

Location Description:

This combination Japanese "deli" and sit-down restaurant is headed by a chef who trained with Morimoto. The capacious front carry-out area offers everything from deluxe sushi packs, to bento boxes, to onigiri, tempura, and sushi cups--an invention that involves sashimi arranged prettily on top of a cup of rice. Sushi packaged to-go is never as good as made-to-order, but within its limitations, Mai offers some very nice raw fish and rice. Bento boxes can be custom-filled with a large selection of dishes--try the curry-fried mackerel.
