New York, NY 10017
Village Voice's Description
This combination Japanese "deli" and sit-down restaurant is headed by a chef who trained with Morimoto. The capacious front carry-out area offers everything from deluxe sushi packs, to bento boxes, to onigiri, tempura, and sushi cups--an invention that involves sashimi arranged prettily on top of a cup of rice. Sushi packaged to-go is never as good as made-to-order, but within its limitations, Mai offers some very nice raw fish and rice. Bento boxes can be custom-filled with a large selection of dishes--try the curry-fried mackerel.

The Rose Main Reading Room is a majestic public space, measuring 78 feet by 297 feet—roughly the length of two city blocks—and weaving together Old World architectural elegance with modern technology.

One of the city's hidden gems. If you need a quiet place to read or work, the reading room on the 3rd floor is THE spot to check.
Ear plugs solve the loud chairs issue. Best place to read or study hands down.
Great place to get some work done but no electrical outlets in this room. Make sure your laptop is charged and ALWAYS use a VPN. LIterally 100's of computers on the network.
