Japan Village is its own stand-alone food court, with about 12 different vendors selling things like sushi, ramen, onigiri, and karaage. We especially like the udon here, and we also enjoy hanging out at the bar and drinking sake while we stare at Sunset Mart across the way and think about the stuff we don’t really need but are going to buy regardless. Just pick a spot, order some food, and find yourself a table.

Sushi Of Gari Tribeca
For us, there are few culinary pleasures in life that exceed sushi bar swagging at Sushi of Gari, watching an old master fish sculptor slice up some heavenly creations destined for our bellies. Unfortunately, this Gari location is our least favorite yet.
Want to impress someone who loves Japanese food? Bring them to Kyo Ya. The unmarked subterranean restaurant is a unique and amazing place.

Three blocks from the Barclays Center, Chuko is not only an ideal pre-game move, but our favorite ramen joint in Brooklyn.
