Come here for a drink and atmosphere, but don’t expect much in the way of palatable food. The charming space offers beautiful views of the Brooklyn Bridge, a glowing red bar area…and strictly tourist-grade Japanese fare. The spicy tuna roll tasted disturbingly fishy, and nonraw offerings, such as the rubbery, precooked shrimp reheated DIY-style on a tiny portable grill, were dreadfully subpar. Out-of-towners might put up with this type of nonsense, but New Yorkers know better.
