Forget Korean tacos or Thai burgers—a new form of fusion cuisine hits Gotham on August 1st. Inspired by the cross-cultural fare they prepare at home, husband-and-wife team Aaron Israel (Torrisi Italian Specialties, Mile End Deli) and Sawako Okochi (Annisa, the Good Fork) turn out Japanese-Jewish dishes. At Shalom Japan, dine on plates like sake kasu challah with sake-raisin butter; chickpea tofu topped with sesame vinaigrette; and pastrami-and-cabbage-stuffed chicken. Drinks also span cultures, with beverage director Micaela Grossman (Torrisi Italian Specialties, Seersucker) curating sakes as well as Eastern European wines. Bamboo-topped tables salute the East, while a train station painting by Israel—a former art student—adds an urban spark. 310 South 4th St at Rodney St, Williamsburg, Brooklyn (718-388-4012)
