One notable exception, Michelin-starred Sushi Taro, is taking a break while figuring out how to come back as a takeout-first business. In most cases, refreshing Japanese beers and bottles of sake are available, often at a discount. Here are 14 options to consider the next time the sushi cravings strikes at home.
