If you’ve been to Double Knot in Midtown Village, you know that they have some of the best sushi in the city. They also have a location at Franklin Table, Penn’s sort-of-new food hall, where you can get the same quality sushi in about 3 minutes flat instead of sitting down for an entire meal. They don’t have exactly the same selection at their to-go window that you’ll find at Double Knot, but you can still get a great box of sushi or sashimi with sauces, rice, and edamame. And, if you have about 30 minutes on your hands, they have a $35 mini-omakase that’s a step up from any other lunch available in the food hall.
