Ganso ramen gents and Japanese cookbook pros Harris Salat and chef Tadashi Ono are planning to complete their trilogy of Brooklyn Japanese restaurants this fall with Ganso Sushi, a 30-seat casual sushi restaurant around the corner from their sophomore effort Ganso Yaki. Ono, a vet of La Caravelle, tells Eater that demolition of the old Brooklyn Tavern space is just about to start and that the team hopes to transform the space into something with a "connection" to Ganso Yaki, so lots of light wood and some weird Japanese chachkies perhaps?
Ono's interviewing sushi chefs, but won't say who just yet. Once he makes that hire, the menu will become clearer, but for the moment, he wants to keep things casual and affordable. Still, he hasn't ruled out the possibility of an omakase option. He also plans to work some raw oysters and steamed clams into the menu, an idea the pair talked about last summer. There will of course be sake to go with all of this, as well as beer, and a first for the Ganso group, Japanese-inspired cocktails. Expect the restaurant to open in October or November and a backyard dining area to debut next spring.
