One silver lining of the pandemic is not having to wait in line for the piscine bites that emerge from Komé’s reliable sushi bar. Order this to go: Sushi to go has its challenges, but rest assured that the unagi maki (barbecued eel) and the tarantula roll, with both tempura fried shrimp tails and soft-shell crab legs peeking out, travel well (if you want pickled ginger or wasabi, be sure to add it to your order). There is not the same variety of nigiri as in the before times, but the slivers of tuna and salmon will tide you over until the water is safer. Gyudon comes in family-meal portions, the savory-sweet slices of dashi-simmered beef and onions flavoring the copious rice. Pro tip: Peruse the grocery section of the online menu and stock up on Pocky and Hi-Chews candies or cooking items like dried wakame and silken tofu.
