The next time I was in town, many of the mask mandates had lifted–and we felt more comfortable sitting inside. This time around, we tried Wasan–another highly recommended spot by said friend. The bento boxes, she said, are to die for. I LOVE sushi and japanese food–I used to get bento boxes with my grandma every Sunday when I was a kid–and this bento box was off the charts. Every detail was so well executed, from the barbeque eel sushi to the marinated vegetables to the best teriyaki salmon I’ve ever had hands-down. This was one for the books!
Also one time I told my server that I loved the pineapple hot sauce my dish came with, and he brought me over a whole quart of it to go!
A few spots more on the beaten path, but worth mentioning–Brooklyn Museum, Elsewhere club & venue, and all of the amazing, curated vintage thrift shops that I just can’t seem to get enough of.
Obviously, there’s a lot to do, buy and eat in Brooklyn. With every trip I take, I stumble upon a different corner of my favorite neighborhood–or a new favorite neighborhood! But don’t take my word for it, go explore this amazing city for yourself.
