Hibino is a casual sushi spot about a block from the 7 and G trains, so it’s a convenient option for a quick dinner or takeout on your way home. They make their own tofu in-house, and have options for non-sushi fans like teriyaki chicken. They serve affordable sushi plates, like a 15-piece sashimi platter for $21.
