You’ve had your fill of white and dark meat. And stuffing. In fact, you may be feeling like a big stuffed bird yourself.

Even so, you have to eat something. Just make it light. And colorful. And about as far from Thanksgiving dinner as it gets.

Sushi fits the bill on all counts. So, here are some places featuring sushi sure to revive your flagging appetite.


At this Massapequa destination for first-rate sushi and sashimi, fish is flown in from Japan. You can’t go wrong with the pristine sashimi or even the ornate maki rolls. Try the bluefin toro, salmon tasting and chef’s ever-changing taste-of-the-sea choices. $$-$$$$

45 Carmans Rd., Massapequa, 516-882-9688,


At this old-school Japanese restaurant, sushi chef Kikumatsu Mitsumori both buys and expertly slices flapping fresh fish. Forget innovative rolls; simple perfection is the rule. Which, here, means nigirizushi, sashimi and chirashi. $$-$$

540 Westbury Ave., Carle Place, 516-333-3434


Ken Ming, chef-owner of this contemporary spot, puts a South American spin on such sushi bar items as yellowtail ceviche and tiradito with escolar and yellowtail. Try the dynamite roll featuring escolar, jalapeño, tuna, yellowtail and salmon with a lemon-yuzu miso sauce both fiery and citrusy. $$-$$$

180 Rte. 25A, East Setauket, 631-751-2299,
