Don"t judge Fushimi by its location in a tiny strip mall in Todt Hill. Walk through the front door, and you"ll see a pretty mah-jongg- and domino-tiled foyer, a wall of shiny river stones trickling with water, and sinewy servers who hand you a warm towel the moment you sit down. The sushi and sashimi here rival some of the more lauded spots in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Special rolls, like the Richmond Roll--peppery bigeye tuna and avocado swathed in spicy, crunchy tuna and topped with thin pieces of shiitake mushroom--are divine. Don"t miss the lightly fried and breaded Kumamoto oysters nestled in a nicely contrasting and yuzu mango sauce.
