The sushi bar at Miku in Greenwich


The approximately 50-seat Miku Sushi (68 Greenwich Ave, Greenwich; 203.900.7676), using ingredients from the Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo, opened in mid-May. Dishes to sample include rock shrimp tempura, grilled octopus, yellowtail with jalapeño, a dragon roll (with avocado, caviar, eel, and cucumber), and miso ramen with pork. Expect guest-chef appearances from Manhattan’s Masa and Nobu, plus exclusive whiskey and sake tastings, in the fall. This is Shifeng “K” Dong’s second restaurant, having opened Scarsdale’s Kumo Sushi & Lounge in December 2014.
 


BurgerIM is the county’s newest fast-casual burger chain.

Mini-burgers (2.8 oz duo- or trio-pack), milkshakes, and panko-crusted onion rings are the prime offerings at the first county outpost of BurgerIM (1137 Boston Post Rd, Mamaroneck; 914.835.0054), an Israeli global fast-casual chain with more than 500 locations. A second county location will open in Dobbs Ferry’s Rivertown Square by early fall.

After a year-plus closure and renovation to go from a coffee-shop interior to a contemporary one, Eileen’s Country Kitchen (960 McLean Ave, Yonkers; 914.776.7532) reopened as Eileen’s in late March. The menu consists of traditional American comfort food, plus Irish specialties. Eileen’s is open for breakfast, lunch, and weekend brunch (with dinner service a future possibility).

Poke Bowl (175 Main St, White Plains), a mostly takeout eatery specializing in the Hawaiian dish of raw, marinated fish tossed over rice and topped with vegetables and umami-packed sauces, was scheduled at press time to have opened by summer’s end.

In June, Land & Sea Restaurant (307 Halstead Ave, Harrison) closed after 45 years in operation.
