Meet Williamsburg's Newest, 1 or 8, Opening Tonight

[Jessica Lin]

Williamsburg's newcomer 1 or 8 isn't the typical big time restaurant opening that gets the Eater Inside treatment. The name is weird, the look is kind of bizarro, the menu, unusual, but who knows, maybe it will be a southside destination. The owners report that they'll be serving a caliber of sushi heretofore unknown in Williamsburg. Either way, it's fun to look at. See the menu below or on their website.
