This handsome Streeterville Asian spot (pronounced "new"), makes a good pre- or post-movie option for those headed to the AMC theater next door. The interior is sleek and minimalist, with warm dark tones. The menu offers plenty of sushi basics -- California, spider, etc. -- but also offers a full page of its own fun, fusion twists like the Sexy Mexican, made ith shrimp, spicy crab, jalapeno, topped with avocado. There is a decent selection of stir-fry creations, and a few pad Thai and cooked Japanese choices for those who don't like to go raw. Stop in for lunch: There's s a prix-fixe lunch menu, too. There is a also a small late-night lounge with specialty cocktails (raspberry mojiotos, lychee martinis) and few nibbles.
