04 Dec The New York Times: A New Japanese Marketplace Opens in Brooklyn
The market, which occupies about half the single-story space, includes a seafood counter (most of the fish comes from Japan), a fresh tofu stall and a butcher shop run by Japan Premium Beef from the East Village. The rest is an array of specialized dining counters, most of which are owned and run by Mr. Yoshida’s company. There are individual stalls for sushi, bento boxes, street food (like okonomiyaki), donburi rice bowls, Japanese snacks and tempura, udon and soba (made on the premises), ramen, salads, coffee and baked goods. Also in the complex, and yet to open, are Waku Waku, a full-service izakaya restaurant and bar with 200 seats, and a liquor store stocked with Japanese imports.
