    Possibly Sushi Spot 2, Or Noribar. Both on Kingston, and both taste great.
    Pick Noribar

    I've heard that Koshertown is good but I don't have any personal experience.

    Now we should definitely have a DO there! (shortest possible commute for me to any food establishment in Crown Heights, and it brings back good memories ;D)
    I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

    Coming from your house I think Arele's is probably a few steps shorter.

    You are wrong. Besides, the commute from my office is even shorter.  ;D

    In Crown Heights distance is measured from 770.

    And the way it is in Crown Heights is the way it is in the entire world.

    Well, I'm not sure you are right about the front door thing (unless we use diagonal lines). But Wholesome bagels doesn't start to bring back the nostalgia and good memories that I have from Mermelstein's.
