Why go to Manhattan when Brooklyn offers an exciting array of Japanese restaurants? Bozu is the sweetest spot this side of the city serving Japanese tapas or small plates which can be paired with Bozu's choice array of saki. Bozu (meaning bald or monk in Japanese) also calls itself a kajitsu-shu or an infusion house, offering 20 different kinds of fruit infusions.
New York has some good Japanese eateries but it's always such a discovery to find one closer to one's home. There was a time when fine dining in Brooklyn was a distant concept. Now with a plethora of cultured and food conscious people with an eye for quality, moving in droves to Brooklyn, the dining scene has changed forever. And the change all points towards Brooklyn, a sleeping tiger that has awakened from it's slumber.
