Zenkichi, a modern Japanese restaurant in Williamsburg is the perfect combination of 3 things: Japanese cuisine, in a hidden location, in Brooklyn. Perfect math, if you ask us!
They are a modern Japanese brasserie with a fantastic traditional Omakase menu. Perfect to experience a true Tokyoite meal!
Zenkichi opened it’s “camouflaged” doors in November 2006 by a homesick Tokyo-native. It’s a modern Japanese brasserie with an authentic dining experience of popular Tokyo establishments located in Williamsburg.
It’s surely a unique dining experience, from the hidden entrance, to the buzzer used to call the waiter, to the semi-private tables. The door is camouflaged within the façade, so do be alert while looking for it and let the excitement start!
The dime lights and the privacy obviously is perfect for a date night, so if you’re in search of a place to wow your loved one, this can be it!
As they mention, the biggest emphasis is of course placed on the Omakase – chef’s tasting menu – which changes every 5 weeks with different seasonal ingredients. There is a la carte menu that also changes every 3 months.
Also, it’s the perfect place to share dishes and this way, you can try a bit of it all!
If you’re not a big sake drinker, it’s ok. They are and they are experts! Just ask to pair it perfectly for you selecting from their 30+ selection of premium sakes. You’ll be amazed with the result!
Have fun at this fantastic Japanese restaurant in Williamsburg!
