Ken Oringer’s reinvention of his longstanding, formal and expensive flagship Clio and sashimi bar UNI into a single restaurant—sashimi bar on one end, sushi bar on the other, a simpler izakaya menu and a much-improved bar in between—was timely and welcome. You can still blow out your credit line on exotic raw seafood flown directly from Tokyo, but the fabulous new lineup of ramen, yakitori and dozens of other affordable small plates make UNI a feasible non-occasion night out.
