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.
Teo is permanently closed.

A nice, big Bushwick restaurant with interesting pastas. It's not quite a destination, but it's a nice addition to the neighborhood.

Ushiwakamaru is now in Chelsea, in a fancier space with higher prices. It's still a top notch sushi option.
