A new Japanese “sushi eatery” is looking to enter the East Village.
Owner Kai Bin Ou submitted an application seeking the ground floor space of the seven-story mixed-use building at 41 Avenue B. The yet-to-be-named concept is slated to offer one rectangular bar with 13 seats and anticipates being open from 5 p.m. until 11 p.m. daily.
Its omakase menu includes a one person deal for $100 that includes three appetizers – with options including toro tartar with caviar, oysters, king salmon pastrami, suki tako, sashimi salad, seafood ceviche, tuna avocado with soy wasabi, and salmon yuzu miso – 12 nigiri, and one hand roll. It will also offer a sushi menu with about three dozen rolls to choose from as well as a select few hand rolls. The team is also seeking a liquor license to serve beer and wine.
The new spot will have to compete with two dozen or so other Japanese restaurants in the area including Domakase, Sake Bar Satsko, Shinn East, Sushi Dojo, Sushi Kai, and more.
