Wasabi is a cornerstone in Brooklyn's Japanese dining scene, recognized for its modern interpretation of classic dishes and insistence on only using the highest-quality fresh ingredients. Serving sushi and cocktails from its home in Greenpoint, this is the kind of place where you can grab a quick bento box for lunch or have a casual dinner where you go all-out with a belly-busting feast.
Luxurious chef's specials include the Amazing Lobster roll with shrimp tempura, avocado and eel inside, lobster salad on top with a layer of sliced mango, and served with chili tropical fruit sauce and caviar. There's also the Naruto-style fish wrapped in thin slices of cucumber, donburi on fluffy rice and an array of different bento boxes. Of course, all of this is washed down with a selection of delicious, well-balanced sake.
