In her Hungry City column this week, Mishan notes that "The strains of empire are apparent" at the six-month-old sushi spot in the Thomson LES Hotel. She continues: "You are on the Lower East Side, but it could be Times Square, or Terminal 5 at Kennedy Airport. The room is gaping; the music is that grim pop that weasels into your head, at once generic and unforgettable." [NYT]
