The one thing about Japanese dining I have always loved is the beauty the delicacy the craft. It is an art form and is treated like one at 1or8 Atelier of Food in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Unlike other rustic places in the neighborhood where you sit on hard wooden stools... 1or8 has a surprisingly large, comfortable, immaculately clean, and well lit dining area. From the Ninjin Mary -a tasty play on a bloody mary, to the yuzusco laced carpaccio, and the unexpected flavors of the terrine. 1or8 blends elements of French cooking with Japanese flavors, and the result is truly unique. Beautifully plated, perfectly cooked, deliciously thought out dishes, with amazing service. This is a destination where you can truly "dine". With fresh fish flown in from Tokyo everyday.. to the carrots for the Ninjin Mary that are flown in seasonally from the north part of Japan. 1or8 really is all or nothing as the name suggests. It is extreme and global. A highly recommended experience. Very reasonably priced.
