Best Sushi in Brooklyn

foodwhisperer | Dec 26, 2012 08:17 PM

In Williamsburg there's a Japanese restaurant without a sign. It's on a quiet street ( S.2nd St.) It's on equal ground as any of the better Manhattan restaurants. The restaurant's name is "1 or 8." I searched the threads but didn't find any reviews on this place. I had the omakase, they have 3 different prices, the highest being $100 ( more reasonable than places like Ichimura, 15 East, Kanoyama etc). The fish was excellent as was the shari. There were many fish varieties from Japan. The bluefin tuna was very good ( i personally enjoyed the chu toro better than the otoro). The anago was exceptional. The chef was the original chef at Jewel Bako, later Geisha. His name is Kazuo Yoshida. The atmosphere is modern , "white" comfortable, Japanese. There are plenty of tables and a good size sushi bar. The service is perfect. The staff extremely friendly. I heard from other patrons that the kitchen food is excellent. One dish I was told was amazing, the shortrib dish. I will try the cooked food next time. I highly recommend this place. By far the best sushi in Brooklyn and worth the trip from Manhattan.
