Eye Candy from Shalom Japan


For this week’s review, Hannah Palmer Egan headed to Shalom Japan (310 South 4th Street, Brooklyn, 718-388-4012), tasting a menu that draws inspiration from both Jewish and Japanese cuisines. “And if Japanese and Jewish cuisines are unlikely bedfellows, Israel and Okochi are also blending personal histories shaped in the kitchens at Torrisi and A Voce (Israel) and Annisa and Lani Kai (Okochi), among others,” she writes. “There’s a lot of background to pull from, but the resulting food feels creative and fresh, with a good shake of culinary kitsch.”
