Third-generation sushi chef Kunihide “Nakaji” Nakajima brings his legacy to the Bowery with his debut namesake restaurant - having previously worked at the (now-shuttered) Sushiden and Harlem’s Michelin-starred Sushi Inoue. The dual-concept space - tucked away in the Canal Arcade - features authentic Edomae-style sushi omakase menus - with much of the restaurant’s fish imported from Tokyo’s famed Tsukiji and Toyosu fish markets - at the Chef's Counter and craft cocktails at the intimate Tokyo-style Bar at Nakaji. Each night, the chef serves his signature seasonal omakase menus (from $165 per person) to just ten diners. Open nightly Tuesday through Saturday.
