If sushi joints were high school students, Mitama would be the shy art geek that all the honors English girls had crushes on. This quietly chic restaurant, with its buttery walls and clear-plastic sculptures, looks more Berkeley than Japan. Some of the dishes, like the mountain vegetable salad and asparagus with sesame, are extensions of Japanese food were accustomed to, while others, like the colorfully named American sushi rolls and battered strips of nori, are as fusion as they come.
