Sushi is one of those foods we’ve been missing extra hard during quarantine. And while we really wish we could sit at a counter and be hypnotized by a chef slicing into a perfect tuna belly, there are still plenty of ways to get some sushi for dinner tonight. The spots on this guide are a good place to start. They’re all doing takeout and delivery, and options range from extremely casual places to upscale restaurants you’d normally have to put on very nice pants to enjoy.
Wabi Sabi’s donburi is one of our favorite things to eat in the Upper East Side, but you’ll also find more standard rolls at the small restaurant as well. Really, anything that comes out of the kitchen here is going to be great and satisfying if you’ve been daydreaming about sushi a lot lately. They’re mostly doing takeout, but also offering $5 delivery within a three-mile radius. Check out the menu online and call (305) 890-7228 to order.
It is kind of a bummer to eat outside of Katana’s cool little restaurant, where plates float through the dining room in a sushi free-for-all. You can maybe try to recreate that experience in your bathtub. But the food here doesn’t necessarily need theatrics and will taste just fine on a boring old dining room table. You can order takeout by calling the restaurant at (305) 864-0037.
Pubbelly has location in Dadeland, Aventura, Brickell, and South Beach. They’re all doing takeout and delivery with 10% off your order if you use the code “PUBBELLYLOVE.” Most of their menu is available for takeout, including the butter krab roll. They also have a pretty ridiculous looking “sushi cake” for $100, in case you want to surprise someone with a small mountain of raw fish.
This fantastic North Bay Village spot is still doing takeout. Wait times continue to be pretty steep if you call during lunch on the weekend, but whatever you order from their huge menu is going to be worth spending a few extra hungry minutes on the couch. Options here range from the basic California roll to signature rolls with deep-fried scallop, and they’re all so good that you might want to give yourself a solid half-hour to make a decision on what to order.
Makoto is a very upscale sushi restaurant in Bal Harbour, and normally not the sort of place you’d call to place a to-go order. But chaos reigns and normal societal rules have been vaporized, so why not put some pricey tuna in your passenger seat and eat it in bed? Check out the menu and place an order online.
Sadly, you won’t get to partake in the sushi boat experience that makes this North Miami spot a fun place to eat. But what you can order here is still tasty and worth adding to your sushi takeout rolodex. The easiest way to order for pick up is to call them at (786) 391-2668.
Despite having “Thai” in its name, you should be ordering the sushi at this North Miami restaurant. Start with one of the cold dish appetizers like the “salmon demon slayer” - which sounds like it shops at Hot Topic but actually tastes very good - then go for any sushi or sashimi that sounds right to you. The full menu is online and you can call the restaurant directly at (305) 947-4338 to order for pick up, or find them on most major delivery apps.
Toni’s is a casual South Beach spot that has some solid sushi. They’ve got rolls for $10 and under, which makes them a good pick for those nights when you absolutely need a salmon roll, but have already blown through your weekly takeout budget like a rocket ship through cotton candy. You can order for pick up and delivery online.
The casual MiMo restaurant is a solid affordable sushi option. Most rolls are $10 or less and they also have nigiri, hand rolls, and combo plates with all of the above. There are hot dishes and appetizers too, in case you want to mix things up a bit. Place your order online.
