Baiku

My sushi buddy, Alexis, and I were looking for sushi in the city that was not the usual Cafe Mochi.

I immediately knew she meant "the restaurant in the lobby of Hotel Ignacio" when she mentioned Baiku and since the scaffolding was down... I didn't think twice about it.

I met up with Alexis and we were the other ones in the restaurant. Turns out they had JUST reopened after the construction finished up so not everyone knows they are open again. They're official grand reopening is THIS Saturday, May 21st, where they'll throw a big party.

I feel like we got an early sneak peak!

I started off with seaweed salad and I just loved the plating!

Seaweed Salad
The server gave us a long list of specials and we decided to try a new kind of fish, skipjack tuna, on a bed of rice. Delicious! They are the items in the top of the picture below...

Of course we got our favorite sushi... so pretty!

If you're craving sushi before a show in Midtown, definitely add this to the list.
