We walked in and were greeted by a slightly awkward hostess who called our waitress to accompany us down a fabulous, dimly lit, bamboo lined, stone walk way to our semi-private two person L-shaped dining booth.
We were presented with menus and the waitress rolled down our bamboo shade and disappeared. A buzzer button was in the corner for us to summon our waitress to take our order. The menu consists of the Chef's Tasting Omakase Menu or an A La Carte Menu. It also has an extensive Sake Menu. My dining companion was reluctant to go for the Omakase so we opted for the a la carte menu.
The menu consists of sharing plates of which we ordered:
- Bottle of Sake
- Chilled Edamame
- Zenkicihi Salad
- Washugyu Beef Tataki
- Tuna Sashimi
- Rocksalt Jidori Chicken
Everything was delicious. If you have been meaning to get to Williamsburg Zenkichi is a great excuse. The place feels authentic and romantic because of a fantastic lighting scheme. I am definitely going to return for the Omakase menu and instead of arriving by subway I will arrive via the East River Ferry.
