Flatiron’s Silk Rd Tavern closed in January for renovations after just six months of operations. Owner Andy Lee retooled the restaurant’s pan-Asian concept and installed a sushi counter, and the restaurant has reopened as Mira Sushi. On the hot line, Telepan vet Brian Tsao is cooking a menu inspired by izakayas and street food, including a Sloppy Joe made with kurobuta pork served with sour mustard on a potato bun, while Owen Wu, who worked at Nobu 57 and Momoya, oversees sushi and sashimi, but also a menu of Japanese small plates like spicy tuna pizza. The cocktails are brand-new, and there is yuzu juice in the Sidecars and the whiskey sours are made with Yamazaki. Check out the menus, straight ahead.
