It’s hard to remember the days when Musashino was the premier, albeit almost only, sushi spot in town. It’s where Tyson Cole (who went on to found the Uchi empire) and Kazu Fukumoto learned to slice fish, and now Fukumoto has his own spot. As you’re heralded by greetings, you’ll notice that the servers are all as hip as the reclaimed-wood decor. But the Japanese izakaya is an ancient concept, and it’s executed nicely here (more so than the sushi); think morsels of octopus yakitori, monkfish liver with yuzu to cut the richness, and fluffy clouds of sweet tamago omelet.
