Japanese in Green Point & ­Waterfront

This branch of the upmarket global Japanese chain is a smooth-running operation. The chefs turn out expert renditions of Nobu Matsuhisa’s signature ceviches and cod in miso sauce, along with the expected sushi and tempura. The soaring dining hall offers a New York–metro buzz.

The more intimate bar upstairs is a nice spot to work your way through the extensive sake menu.
