Wanpaku is a Japanese restaurant in Greenpoint with a nice-looking minimalist space, friendly staff, and a bar in the back called The Hidden Pearl. They have a bunch of small plates, including some very good Japanese fried chicken and salmon tartare with a raw quail egg. Feel free to skip the pork bun and fried oysters, but we’d suggest not skipping the tonkatsu curry. It’s great.
