New on the Dining Scene: Ichiro Fusion, White Plains


There’s a flourish to Ichiro Fusion, the new Japanese restaurant on Mamaroneck Avenue that has come to White Plains by way of the Upper East Side. Long a fixture for sushi-loving Manhattanites, the new suburban location — open since June — is decorated in hues of purple, dark blues, peaches and browns, and has an impressive sake bar (more than 50!) and two horseshoe-shaped banquettes ideal for sipping Asian Peartinis and sampling dishes such as Mandarin duck salad and truffle salmon.

A long, back-lit bar greets you, giving way to a sizable lounge area with minimalist peach settees and a dining room separated by bamboo stalks.
