While One Fulton Square hasn’t quite caught on, this upscale gem tucked into the Hyatt Place Hotel is a worthy anchor and addition to the local scene. Duck inside the modern glass façade and you’re greeted with curving leather booths and beautiful blonde flooring. You’ve seen this before, you think to yourself, but this is a curious outlier— think Queens in high heels. Diners can opt for omakase or à la carte. While the former might begin with a chilled bowl of soft tofu topped with creamy uni; the latter showcases cool kanpachi, shima aji, tai, and kinmedai nigiri. Then, tender-cooked rice, cooked in an earthenware pot, is tinted with the addition of dashi, topped with maitakes, and folded with flakes of salmon for a bright assortment.
