Long Island Sushi From Owners Of Nobu?
This place just opened in Sea Cliff; haven't been there:
Sea Cliff Coffee & Sushi closed years ago. Arata very good, but it's also true that a lot of the good sushi restaurants that have opened up on the Island in the past few years boast that at least one of the folks involved has come from Nobu. Sometimes we wonder if they washed dishes or took reservations at Nobu!
I just came across Arata Sushi in Syosset. There is a Newsday article from 2011 which highlights the restaurant and chef as a "young veteran of the Nobu empire". Urbanspoon doesn't put it very high on their list as 86% liked it but that may not mean much if this place is still finding it's stride.
