Juku is a rather unique new venue that recently popped up in the heart of Chinatown. The multi level venue is actually three concepts in one. Art plays a big role in the design with commissioned works from New York-based artists as well as others around the world. You'll find a street-level izakaya for cocktails and casual bites and a not-yet-open vibey bar downstairs. A la carte options include traditional dishes like tonkatsu and karaage, as well as more modern interpretations like uni rice, fried chicken and egg custard. On the second floor there is a 12-seat omakase sushi bar headed up by Chef Kazuo Yoshida, former sushi chef at Williamsburg’s 1 or 8. The space is reservation-only and offers two menus, $80 for 12 pieces of sushi and $120 for 15 pieces and a hand roll.
