You know that fun-looking bar you've seen on your way to Roberta's? That's Momo Sushi Shack. Momo Sushi Shack feels like a little hut, and it definitely doesn't feel like your standard non-descript neighborhood sushi spot. Like its sister spot Bozu in Williamsburg, Momo's signature item is its "bombs," which are basically just round pieces of nigiri sushi. There are only long communal tables which gives the place a fun vibe. It makes for a good early in the game date spot in Bushwick.
