Japanese American 'East meets West' Izakaya

Cool and chic, Brooklyn Yakuza is a tasteful tribute to the East meets West culinary culture of both America and Japan. Amidst the deep neon lights and theatrical sake bar setting, the venue takes inspiration from Tokyo’s buzzing Izakayas to embrace casual gatherings with grazing styled sharing plates and drinks. It is the ideal space to enjoy signature cocktails crafted with Japanese ingredients, or Sake that will carry the partying late into the night.

Brooklyn Yakuza’s cuisine takes inspiration from a variety of cooking techniques, giving diners the opportunity to explore different tastes and textures. Guests can expect both traditional and modern bases in the delivery of little plates, tempuras, grills and raws.

DRINK SAKE STAY SOBA, ask us about our tasting bar which features a stunning Sake list packed with outbursts of flavours, from fruity to floral, mellow to sophisticated, umami, crisp to dry and perfect for our hybrid cuisine.


Meet Executive Chef Phillip Pak

Chef Phillip brings a background in Asian haute cuisine which is epitomized on the brand-new mouthwatering menu at Brooklyn Yakuza. Born and bred in Aspen, his culinary education was taken to the next level when he moved on to working for NOBU restaurants in the ski resorts of Vail and Aspen.

He looks forward to offering the best ingredients, innovative dishes but not straying too far from traditional Japanese flavors and techniques at Brooklyn Yakuza. His vision for the restaurant is to create dishes that are not only exclusive of Japanese flavors but also using influence from his time growing up in the US as a Korean-American.

Cool and chic, Brooklyn Yakuza is a tasteful tribute to the East meets West culinary culture of both American and Japan. Join us and Kanpai!
