The owners of MIKU SUSHI on Greenwich Avenue, K Dong, and Chef Steve Chen, have partnered with Tony Capasso, managing partner at Tony’s at the J House, to launch an all-new “elevated” sushi bar at the trendy boutique hotel, J House, in Greenwich, Connecticut.
The MIKU x Tony’s pop-up is led by Executive Chef Joe Liu, former head sushi chef at Tao and Masa in Manhattan. Chef Liu trained uber master sushi Chef Daisuke Nakazawa, featured in the documentary film, Jiro Dreams of Sushi alongside world-renown master sushi chef, Jiro Ono.
The menu soft-launched on Monday and features almost a dozen of the MIKU signature rolls including two new exclusives, Tony Roll made with bluefin toro, avocado, scallion and spicy lobster salad, and J House Roll made with king salmon, avocado, wasabi sesame and spicy yellowtail.
The nigiri a la carte list includes fish from the famous Tokyo fish market like shima aji, maidai, kanpachi, hamachi, and eel, all delivered fresh from Japan daily. This list of thinly sliced raw or cooked fish layered atop a mound of vinegary rice is also served with toppings that patrons won’t find at MIKU.
“We wanted to provide something new and different at Tony’s,” explained Dong. He continued, “Chef Liu is one of the best sushi chefs in the country and we wanted to bring him in to help us create an elevated gastronomic experience that would stimulate the senses. Tony and I are really excited to hear what customers think about the extra special menu we created for this collaboration.”
In addition to the menu, the MIKU team is also bringing handcrafted dishware and glassware to Tony’s that is only made in Japan by skilled craftsmen. Each plate is unique and considered a work of art. Sake will also be available for patrons to consume using sake glasses that look like trendy floating cups.
