Arata Sushi, Syosset: Jimmy Lian's sushi, traditional and contemporary, bridges refined Japanese and creative New American styles. The chef's choice selection is exceptional. Likewise, the familiar nigirizushi. And Lian prepares distinctive sushi such as maguro "invictus" with wasabi-daikon radish dressing (pictured) and an "invincible sandwich" with triangles of salmon, avocado, tomato and roes. You may find Maui onion salsa with fluke or white tuna with salsa verde, too.(Credit: Newsday / Rebecca Cooney)
