Do toasted pine nuts go with raw tuna and mango? How about cilantro with truffle oil and white tuna? At this cute sushi spot outfitted with natural-wood tables and stylish industrial-metal chairs, the answer is: as long as you can roll it all together, of course. Dozens of fun maki amalgams make up most of the menu here, rounded out by a basic but fresh selection of sashimi (tuna, salmon, yellowtail) and a couple of salads (crunchy seaweed in sesame-oil vinaigrette). While matching ingredients for the rolls is up to the sushi chef, the BYOB policy means you’re responsible for the other important pairing, so don’t forget to pick up a bottle of wine.
