A Thai-sushi spot might seem like a welcome change of pace on a stretch of Italian red-sauce joints. And it is—just so long as you stick to the Thai food. The sushi we tried here was mediocre, but the chicken satay in the sampling platter was perfectly tasty. Ditto for the curry fried rice, which arrived with plump cubes of tofu. The extensive cocktail list may tempt you to end your meal with a nightcap—a fine choice, but don’t forget that Mario’s Italian Ice is right next door.
