If you’re looking for a low-commitment date spot in Bushwick, and you don’t want to deal with 24-year-old graphic designers spilling $4 tallboys on you, check out Teo. This Japanese spot serves a mix of small plates, skewers, and ramen, all of which are shareable and under $16. We recommend sticking to the small plates - especially the cornmeal-fried oysters topped with sweet potato puree and pickled pepper, and the fried chicken with chili honey. Sit at the counter overlooking the open kitchen or the communal table that runs the length of the space, and keep ordering rounds of drinks and small plates if things are going well.

Three blocks from the Barclays Center, Chuko is not only an ideal pre-game move, but our favorite ramen joint in Brooklyn.
Nagomi is a non-descript sushi restaurant on Prince Street that can be summed with one new tag on this website: Perfect For When You Can’t Get In to Blue Ribbon Sushi. It’s a solid stand-in for when you can’t get into the more exceptional spots in the area.
