This weekend, New York gets its first taste of Sushi Shop — a concept that has revolutionized Sushi take-out in Europe for fourteen years. The meticulous two-story space is located on Madison Avenue, featuring self-service and takeout by day and in-restaurant dining at night. With 150 choices of maki-style rolls, "crossovers" like foie gras sushi and fish tartares, macarons (by Mille-feuille Bakery), and booze, it sounds like quite the party. [NYT]
