Mai Cuisine Now Delivers: Sushi and bento fans can now enjoy Mai Cuisine (on 41st btw. Mad+5th) without leaving the safety of their office. Mai delivers lunch from 11:30-4:30, and their delivery zone extends from York Ave. to 11th Ave. and 23rd St. to 59th St. I enjoyed Mai Cuisine when I tried it, even if the prices were a little steep. Orders can be placed online here.

Holy Mackerel, Mai Sushi is Pretty Good

I should probably admit off the bat that I never ate at Chiyoda Sushi (on 41st btw. Mad+5th). Of all the times I walked right by it on my way to Cafe Zaiya, I think I stopped in once and I still ended up going to Zaiya. Despite Zach’s strong recommendation to check it out, I just couldn’t get excited for what was described as a more refined (more expensive) version of the Zaiya experience. Admittedly I’m not sure why that was because I’ve definitely spent $10 at Zaiya before, so it’s not like that is usually a dirt cheap lunch for me. Now that Chiyoda has been reborn as Mai Sushi, I decided it was time to give them a try.

More on Mai Sushi: Sarah D. from Fork in the Road hit up Mai Sushi the other day (the Chiyoda Sushi replacement on 41st btw. Mad+5th) and not only thinks the sushi is better than Whole Foods but declares "if I worked in the neighborhood, I'd definitely make it part of my lunch rotation."  Done and done.  She particularly liked the curry fried spanish mackerel.

Mai Cuisine is “Officially” Open: Last week we reported that Chiyoda Sushi's replacement Mai Cuisine had opened on 41st btw. Mad+5th, but according to Grub Street the "official" grand opening was yesterday. They also noted that one of the chefs used to work under Iron Chef Morimoto, and Mai is owned by the company who supplies all the sushi to Whole Foods (is that a good thing or bad thing?)

At Lunch Now: Mai Sushi is Now Open

This just in from Lunch’er “Matt”… Mai Sushi, the re-branded Chiyoda on 41st btw. Mad+5th, is now open to the public. According to Matt “It was a mad house at 1:30 but all the food looks exactly the same.”
