The Sushi options are very limited in Williamsburg, but who cares about that when there is a Japanese restaurant like 1 or 8. Let me tell you this is probably one of my most memorable Asian meals in the last months. This is not just a sushi/sashimi place, here you can find all kind small delicious Japanese dishes: Pork belly, tuna tataki, oyster, rolls, bonito, uni, ceviche, croquetas, duck, …. all good stuff!!!
When all that amazing food is combined with excellent service and white minimalist decoration, this is the perfect restaurant in the coolest neighborhood in NY: Williamsburg.
This place is worth a train ride, even if you are staying in Manhattan, since it is very hard to find this quality even there. It is even big enough to host a 8-10 party.
By the way this was my first time using the new Fujifilm X100, and the pictures came out quite good! This is what we ordered:
Oysters special of the day. Unfortunately I did not take the take the oyster type, but anyway they were super fresh and perfectly opened!
