Junko Sushi Opens

About a month ago, I mentioned the upcoming arrival of a new sushi restaurant on Broadway and 33rd street called Junko Sushi.  Well, I've been watching it for a while and just recently noticed that it's fully functioning.  Walking by today, I noticed a nice crowd inside, and for a new restaurant it seemed to be doing well.

I grabbed a menu and liked what I saw - innovative dishes that span beyond just traditional sushi.  There are tons of inventive specialty rolls with a cool selection of cold and hot apps that almost seem tapas like.  Check out the sampling of the menu below, and prepare to drool.

  1. We got a delivery of some of the more standard rolls and they were super yummy! can't wait to try out the rest of the menu. Bummed that Sunrise isn't making sushi anymore, but Junkos boston rolls are a good substitute.

  2. Very cool - good to know they were yummy!

  3. Tried this place right after seeing your announcement. This place is great! Very friendly. The Chilean Sea Bass Spring Roll is unique and delicious. The Thai Crab Cake is also unusual. It's light but very tasty with an unusual, but good flavor combination. And loaded with crab meat. Try the conch dish. It was a winner. Really glad this place is here.

  4. I'm so glad you had such a great experience there Anon. I can't wait to try it and would love to try the conch dish - I'm a fan of it in general. Thanks for the helpful feedback.
