I'll admit that I've passed by Le Miu (107 Avenue A) several times & glanced in with a certain disdain at their fancy tables & 'shi-shi air', but my buddy Todd finally managed to drag me in there a few weeks ago & I had a blast.
So, I decided to go back yesterday with my brother (Sous Chef Stef) & a friend. As usual, the food was excellent. I ordered the Le Miu Sushi Platter & the eel & cucumber roll. I fancy myself as a bit of a sushi snob & I can tell you with all certainty that this is some of the best sushi that you will get in the city. The service was excellent, the restaurant is spacious, the plating alone makes your mouth water & the bartender on that particular night, Ranya (sic?) is as cool as a cucumber.
My brother kept on ranting & raving about the place, which serves up fantastic sushi at a very reasonable price. Looks like I won't be going to Takahachi any more. The fact that Le Miu is a stone's throw from my apartment makes me really angry for snubbing the place for so long... I highly recommend Le Miu for all of your East Village sushi needs...
