Zenkichi

So Jenn wanted to take my other friend Annie and I to this little japanese restaurant. They serve authentic japanese cuisine  Since the two of us were such japanese food lovers she thought we would really enjoy it. She was right! =D

77 N 6th St, Brooklyn, NY 11211
718.388.8985

They are kind of secretive. If you weren't looking for it I don't think I would have noticed it. 


They serve tapas like Tokyo seasonal small dishes. (Per their website)

It was a small bulding with three flights. The seating was mainly on the second floor and the third was the restroom and I assume offices are. 


Yes real pebbles!


Here is a shot from the third floor.


These bamboo shoots are hanging lightbulbs that light up each table on the second floor.

 

I always love it when they restaurants put a fresh bouquet of flowers in the bathroom.


This isn't our table but here is a typcial seating with curtains or blinds for privacy. 

Here is the menu.


Okay finally is what we ate.
