Ozokushi is a tiny sushi place in Williamsburg, and it’s fairly unique. They only offer three set meals (ranging from $25-$45), and they serve Kyoto-style sushi that’s been pressed into little boxes. Each set meal includes six pieces of this sushi, and all of them come with the same kind of fish, which they try to differentiate by adding things like shiso or blue cheese, but it still gets a little boring. So if you’re looking to try a lot of different fish, this place isn’t too exciting, but the more expensive set meals that come with hand rolls and sashimi are a pretty good deal. Seeing as how the most you can spend is $45 (which isn’t bad for sushi), this place is worth checking out, although keep in mind that they only have about four small tables, and they don’t take reservations. Also, it’s BYOB.
