I got this flyer in the mail and was like whoa! I kinda want to do all three.
I remembered Yoshie told me about this place opening up a few months back. I remembered watching this video and saw no real reason to go, unless I was trying to be ironic. But I do like the idea of a super fancy Vegas-style sushi restaurant plopping right down in Williamsburg.
We met up to try this Unlimited Bloody Mary/Mimosa/Bellini brunch special $20. Sounds like a really good deal. I’m assuming business didn’t start off as well as they hoped and so they’re having these specials to get the neighborhood kids in.
The restaurant is really awesome, again in a flashy Vegas-way. I love it. It seems so out of place in the neighborhood …maybe not so much these days I suppose. Maybe Disney is going to open a theme park in Williamsburg. I would love that, but I’m from Orlando.
It wasn’t crowded when we first sat down, but did fill up in the two hours we were there. Mostly tourists and families it seemed like …a place where you’d take your parents to if they came and visited you in NY. It felt like a fancy Denny’s.
We got to pick an appetizer for our brunch and I thought they were great. The Crab Bisque and Yellowtail Jalapeno were tasty. Unfortunately, the entrees were just meh. We had the Ribeye Steak & Eggs and Scottish Salmon. Nothing impressive. Kinda reminded me of Denny’s again. But I guess in this deal, it’s probably not going to be an amazing cut of meat …considering that I had three or four Bloody Marys. It basically made the meal free or really cheap if I was counting the drinks.
The first drinks came fast, but those later rounds not so much. I couldn’t tell if the waiter was just swamped or if they intentionally slow it down when you start to drink too much.
I still like Fushimi. It’s really cool. Even though the food isn’t really good, I want to say it’s the coolest place in Williamsburg. Everyone else is trying to be dirty or rustic. This place is the opposite and very bold about it. Look at the entrance way to the restrooms!
I want to check out Sexy Ladies’ Night.

Walking around Williamsburg drunk in the middle of day is interesting. We were much willing to get foot and back rubs at those sketchy looking Chinese places in the neighborhood. We first went to the Back & Foot Rub place on the corner of Metropolitan and Graham. I’ve never seen anyone go in there and it looks dark and you can’t see what’s going on in there …and why is there 61 minutes? What is the extra minute for?
They couldn’t take us all at the same time, so Todd and I ditched Elissa there and we walked around the corner on Graham to another foot rub place – Mei Ying Qi Gong Tui Na. We got 15mins for $15. I was laughing the whole time because all I can hear is slapping from the other room …also because I’m ticklish.
