David Bouhadana left the kitchen of Sushi Dojo last fall following a dispute with the ownership over the DOH's glove rule. But now the acclaimed sushi chef has a new project in the works in the old Apizz space at 217 Eldridge Street. According to plans submitted to the CB3, the restaurant — dubbed Nishiwaki — will have a small bar, a few tables, and a counter with 39 seats. A sample menu includes a chef's tasting, plus a la carte sushi, donburi bowls, wagyu beef, and butter miso cod. The chef tells Eater that he "fell in love with the space" and that it's going to "take a few months to build it." The Nishiwaki team will go before the CB3 on May 16 to rally support for a liquor license application. Stay tuned for more details on Bouhadana's new sushi project as they become available.
