Manhasset has the Miracle Mile, Freeport the Nautical Mile; now, East Northport presents the Sushi Roll Mile. With the debut of two new Asian restaurants, there are now five sushi houses strung along Jericho Turnpike between Elwood and Larkfield roads.
Here’s the lineup as you drive west to east:
MIO SUSHI & STEAKHOUSE (New)
Along with sushi bar standards, this sleek new sushi-hibachi restaurant features such items as live scallop, lobster and geoduck sashimi. There’s also a roster of skewered grilled items, hibachi dishes and pan-Asian choices.

Along with Thai red curry and Vietnamese summer rolls, this pan-Asian chain also features a full sushi bar menu.
