Japanese tradition rules the roost in Sunnyside sushi annex Takesushi, where owner Robin Kawada has one objective, and one objective only: serving fresh, high-quality fish. Takesushi offers items typical of your neighborhood sushi joint; salads and tempura bites are followed by a wide selection of sashimi, special rolls, and inside-out rolls. Of course, the menu’s star is its dedicated fish section, which features everything from monkfish liver to grilled mackerel to steamed manila clams and often details both country of origin and whether each fish is farm-raised or wild. In case you’re wondering, Kawada handpicks the catches he serves up at Fulton Fish Market every single morning. For the vegetarians among you, much of the produce served in the summer and fall months comes straight from Kawada’s sister’s garden in Westchester. A restaurant like Takesushi can get away with skipping the frills when it’s got food so fresh.
