Zagat editor Maureen Giannone recently visited the new Shalom Japan in South Williamsburg, Brooklyn and filed the following report.

Japanese and Jewish food may not be a likely pair, but in Brooklyn, they're all the rage at the new Shalom Japan. New York masterchefs and husband-wife duo Aaron Israel and Sawako Okochi have teamed up for their new eatery, Shalom Japan, that's happily greeting Williamsburg diners on the corner of South 4th Street in Brooklyn.

"[It's] new American cuisine, [with] some things falling a little more Shalom and some things a little more Japan," explains General Manager and Partner Micaela Grossman, adding, "the menu is just a collection of their experiences."

This menu is far from fusion. Instead, the chefs created an inventive menu that is highlighted by Jewish and Japanese influences in new dishes daily - like the Sake Kasu Challah with raisin butter and the Lox Bowl served with rice, daikon, avocado, and ikura.

And the dishes aren't the only items that have been expertly thought out. The drinks are also not-to-be-missed with liquor and ingredients coming from all around the globe.
