Kouzan takes a sultry approach to neighborhood Japanese dining. The large space is sleek and dark, and a waterfall adorns one of the two entrances. Inlaid-stone columns bracket the sushi and cocktail bars, and the rectangular stone is repeated along walls trimmed with dark wood. Electronica provides the soundtrack. It’s no scene, however; the clientele are a low-key mix of upper Amsterdam Avenue denizens. Classic sushi and kitchen offerings share top billing. Red snapper is lightly breaded and fried golden, then finished with the subtle citrus of a yuzu soy sauce. The house roll is a fat piece of tuna that’s complemented with mango and lobster salad, wrapped in cucumber, and topped with pearls of salmon roe. Eel comes in meaty sushi slabs, which fare better than the sauce-heavy unagi rolls. Udon soups, teriyakis, and fluffy tempuras round out the menu, with bento box specials available at both lunch and dinner.
