One of the city’s best spots for affordable, quality sushi and Kyoto-style small-plates comfort food.

333 Henry St., Brooklyn, NY, 11201



Known For

The lowdown

From the outside, Hibino looks like a pretty run-of-the-mill neighborhood sushi joint. Step inside and you’ll discover why there’s often a crowd on the sidewalk waiting for a table: It’s actually one of the city’s best spots for quality, affordable sushi. The sushi plate features seven pieces of chef’s choice sushi, plus your pick of roll for $24, while a sashimi plate offers 15 pieces for $30. The fish is super fresh and well-prepared — even the standard rolls feel like they’ve had a little extra attention paid to them. Sushi excellence aside, the rest of the menu merits attention too, like the small jars of mellow, creamy fresh tofu livened up with grated ginger, scallions, and a soy-dashi sauce. “Hibino” means “daily” in Japanese and parts of the menu do change each day; check their website for today’s selection of obanzai (Kyoto-style small plates), which could include anything from soy-simmered pork belly to a yam-noodle-and-kimchi salad.
