Other than the fact that there’s a pot pie on the menu, Bushniwa is a pretty straightforward Japanese restaurant in Bushwick. You’ll find things like dumplings and pork buns, as well as some quality, reasonably priced sushi and sashimi. You can get a sushi combo for less than $30, and there’s also a full bar with cocktails, wine, and sake. So stop by on a weeknight, or bring a friend on a Saturday and split a bottle of wine.

La Isla Cuchifritos

Waiting in a line outside of any restaurant seems a bit silly to us, but Tomoe is arguably one of the best sushi restaurants in the city, as you will see by those patiently standing single file out front on most nights. And it certainly isn't the atmosphere that's got people queued up on Thompson Street. The place is a dump.
