Shalom Japan

This hybrid between Aaron Israel (former sous at Torrisi) and his wife Sawako Okochi (former sous at Annisa) opens in South Williamsburg. The Matzo Ball Ramen (pictured) is beyond.


New Spanish big-hitter (a stone’s throw from Colicchio & Sons and Del Posto) by Boston’s Ken Oringer. The tapas menu, like the space, is vast and ambitious.


Somewhere we’ve been wanting to try forever and really glad we did – tiny Japanese on West Houston that you can easily walk right by. Excellent sushi, excellent value. Don’t miss the radish/toro nigiri.
