You know a sushi place is special when the team commissions an artist to design the takeout packaging. That’s the case with Sushi Muse, a new takeout and delivery project from the chef of high-end Japanese spots Odo and Hall. Fortunately, the food inside their present-like bento boxes lives up to the design, including some flaky-sweet anago, sparkly silver kohada, and idyllic chutoro that should run for mayor of New York. We’d recommend letting the chef choose your sushi selection by ordering the original, premium, or luxury boxes (which range from $38 to $95), but you can also curate your own nigiri box or get a smaller “salmon lover” or “tuna lover” combo for $23.

Sushi Seki Chelsea
The Chelsea Sushi Seki outpost is bigger and badder than the original. Aside from the decor differences, everything appears to be exactly the same.
