Gone fishing

Miya’s Sushi has been around New Haven—first on Chapel Street, now on Howe—since 1982, and owner/chef Bun Lai has become increasingly well known for his experiments with “sustainable sushi” and dishes involving cicadas, nutria, and more. Now the restaurant’s façade has an equally offbeat flourish: a sculpture by local artist Silas Finch of a newsprint-covered boat with two curvaceous oars. According to the Daily Nutmeg, “Finch says the idea is to evoke the ocean, of course, but also to create a fantastical giant squid/sea monster effect, which fits right in with one of Miya’s signature moves: putting actual sea monsters—invasive species, that is—on the menu.”
