Profile

Yuji Haraguchi loves seafood. At Okonomi, he serves a fish-centric Japanese breakfast, using the leftover bones for broths when it transitions into Yuji Ramen. That restaurant’s success was parlayed into Osakana, a seafood market that also offers classes and to-go food like yakizakana donburi. Haraguchi’s plan, it seems, is to create his own Little Japan in this corner of South Williamsburg, where he's making a stand for sushi with Okozushi. While the restaurant isn’t a change of pace for Haraguchi, it is for New York’s sushi scene: He’s serving Kyoto-style sushi, which emphasizes cured and pickled fish at affordable prices, whereas most restaurants in this city do edomae-style at astronomical prices. Haraguchi's stated goal is to serve high-quality omakase but to keep the price down by using local seafood. For sashimi, you might get big-eye chutoro with mint, grape, and ginger, while the temari could be whitefish salad with a sesame dressing. Haraguchi has become somewhat obsessed with bluefish since moving to New York, and he’s using a lot of it here. Think kombu-cured bluefish hakozushi with ingredients like salted orange, ginger, dill, and olive. It’s creative, unusual stuff. But not unexpected for a guy who earned attention for salmon and cheese mazemen ramen.
