Erika, the daughter and right hand of beloved itamae Michio Kushi, opened her own sushi spot just down the road from her dad’s old haunt, Sushi Deli, in North Bay Village in 2018, and she brought many of her father’s classics with her. Included on the menu of topnotch rolls are specials such as squid leg kara-age ($5.50) and a chef’s-choice sushi platter. Calm your California roll cravings for a moment and order the battera — a traditional pressed mackerel dish alongside a simple maki filled with the sweet gourd kampyo. Bona fides confirmed, you’re now ready to dive into the sweet shrimp served with its head on, Japanese sea urchin, and needlefish (in season). New Normal: Takeout orders only. Orders are accepted beginning at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday through Saturday; customers are asked to pay in advance.
