Sushi master D.K. Lee furnishes beautifully presented, moderately priced sushi crafted from the freshest cuts of fish in spare, clean, appealing environs. The creamy, butter-soft yellowtail deserves the most attention. The spider roll is wonderful: a deep-fried soft-shell crab, sprinkled with flying fish roe and paired with cucumber strips before being rolled tight in seaweed, then pressed in vinegared rice and black sesame seeds and sliced on the diagonal. The result had a rich flavor, a delicious departure from the typical healthy-fresh sushi roll.
