This Asian restaurant's black wooden chairs and dim lighting at its below-street-level location set a striking scene for a sushi-filled supper. It excels not only for its specialty sashimi and sushi rolls, but also for entrées like pan-roasted Skuna Bay salmon with pickled mustard seeds. Or go big with the priciest entrée on the menu: charcoal-grilled Akaushi beef ribeye. Kenichi also has its own (expensive) private-label sake, produced from a small brewery in Kyoto,
Japan. With a crowd? Book one of the private tatami rooms or a curtained-off "rock star" booth.
