Casual sushi and cocktail joint serving modern inventions

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.

Meet Wasabi owners Robby and Cristin: The Pioneers of Greenpoint

Nestled in the beautiful community of Greenpoint is Wasabi - the longest-standing Japanese restaurant in Brooklyn. For the past 20 years, husband and wife owners Robby and Cristin Wijaya have welcomed regular customers and foodies from all over the world who come to the restaurant seeking its unique cuisine and family-friendly vibe.

Wasabi offers traditional Japanese dishes fused with Indonesian flavors and a French influence.
Robby has crafted the restaurant's innovative menu from his life experiences, creating each plate with a tasty purpose and a beautiful aesthetic.

The story of how Wasabi came to be what it is today started with the first time Robby and Cristin met. They both come from the same village in Indonesia but hadn't met until they were both in New York. Cristin was working as a cashier at Wasabi, and Robby, who had originally landed in Philadelphia, came to the restaurant hoping they could utilize his skills as a master sushi chef. As fate would have it, the two instantly fell in love and decided that together, they would buy Wasabi and make it their own.

"We love what we do because we love sushi. We found that sushi is an art form where people can express their feelings on a plate," Robby says. "When we serve our food, it also comes from our hearts and feelings. We first met at Wasabi," Cristin adds, "which makes Brooklyn extra special to us.”
