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.

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.
Kajitsu in Murray Hill is such a special place that it deserves to be part of the conversation when it comes to essential New York restaurants.

BK Jani is a counter-service place in Bushwick serving meat-heavy Pakistani street food that you’ll think about when you’re in bed late at night.
For all of the things that Williamsburg does have when it comes to restaurants, one thing it doesn’t seem to have is excellent sushi. Unfortunately, Bozu only proves that point.
