A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to Amami in Greenpoint, Brooklyn to check out their menu. This izakaya-style restaurant is a great neighborhood find.
Spearheaded by Chef/Owner Nick Wang (a veteran of Hatsuhana), Amami serves a variety of Japanese favorites from fresh sushi & sashimi, to Ramen and yakitori. The atmosphere, which features brick walls and reclaimed wood, is laid back and relaxed, making it the perfect after work/dinner spot. Next year, the restaurant plans to open a 3,000 sq. ft rooftop bar as well as a sidewalk cafe, both of which will be fun addition to the restaurant and the neighborhood.
Given that there’s so much variety on the menu, it can be hard to decide what to try. However, due to the fact that everything is guaranteed fresh and prepared with century-old techniques, you really can’t go wrong with ordering at this restaurant.
Here’s what I tried:
