Lincoln Square sushi in the former Tank space (from two former employees).

Our Review

At first glance, Miku doesn't seem to be taking sushi terribly seriously. Its ridiculous rolls incorporate things like fried banana and lobster, honey, fried tofu, and, yes, cream cheese. For the sake of science I had to order the "X'mas" Maki, an elaborate arrangement of spicy tuna and snow crab, cucumber, avocado, masago, and sweet soy, garnished with a bright red amaranth flower. Situated next to the simple, perfectly rolled hamachi maki, it looks like a circus clown macking on a ballerina. That at least underscores the fact that at Miku you can get some carefully prepared sushi. An escolar nigiri, lightly dusted with togarashi and briefly torched, is a pretty subtle and unusual method of gussying up raw fish that doesn't mess with its integrity. Miku has a broad menu that features ramen (of course), robata skewers, and an array of small and large plates featuring everything from snails to gyoza to alligator if, say, you're hungry for something a little more sustainable than volcano rolls by the pound.
