If you’re looking to avoid the swarms of show diners in the Theater District, Kodama will be your happy place. With a loyal local fanbase, this sushi restaurant is a safe bet when craving moderately priced sushi and sashimi. Maki, sushi and sashimi platters are the go-to here, though non-seafood options such as fried chicken and hot stone terriyaki dishes are also delicious. Interior is very typical of a standard sushi restaurant: light wood, caligraphy art and bright lights. Grab a seat at the bar for a more intimate dining experience, or pick a table by the window for prime people watching.
