Profile

Lime-green lettering provides the sole spot of color on Kiku’s industrial-gray exterior, and it reflects a quiet but self-assured flair that extends to the tables inside. Creative items such as the Angel Roll forgo rice and wrap spicy yellowtail, salmon, papaya, and avocado in a rice pancake instead; precisely arranged eel-and-avocado rolls, boasting more fish than rice, arrive on textured black platters. Likewise, the dark, sparse room — small black tables, stainless chairs, exposed-brick walls — radiates cool effortlessly. There’s no sushi bar per se, just a spotlighted counter where intensely focused chefs manipulate impeccably fresh fish into generous rolls and thick slabs.

Disclaimer

This Kiku (which, by the way, means “chrysanthemum” in Japanese) is unrelated to the other Brooklyn sushi restaurants that share its name.
