Brooklyn’s Best Japanese Restaurant Explains Why Their Borough Has Become a Nightlife Mecca April 29, 2015

Fort Greene, Brooklyn
Brooklyn’s Best Japanese Restaurant Explains Why Their Borough Has Become a Nightlife Mecca, Brooklyn, New York

The word is out about Brooklyn; the borough that was always a side-note to Manhattan has come to represent all that’s exciting and special about urban living. In fact, within the last five years, it’s eclipsed the other boroughs in terms of nightlife and dining options. According to the folks Kinjo, a Japanese and Asian fusion restaurant in the thriving Brooklyn neighborhood of Ft. Greene, there are a number of reasons that life is good across the East River.

What are these reasons? Let’s take a look:

  • It’s Easy to Get to: If you don’t live in Brooklyn, that’s not a problem. There are a number of options for taking the trains from Manhattan. It should also be noted that hot spot neighborhoods such as Dumbo, Williamsburg, Ft. Greene, Carroll Gardens, and Park Slope are all within a 10-minute subway ride of the city.
  • Culture: If you ask a Brooklynite, they'll tell you that this borough has actually culturally eclipsed its neighbor to the west. There’s a thriving local music scene, endless art galleries, literary events every night of the week, and plenty of comedy, theater, and dance venues to enjoy. While the Brooklyn Museum might not be as prestigious as the Met, it frequently plays host to thought-provoking art shows.
  • The Food: Brooklyn’s diversity and former “underdog” status make its culinary scene relentlessly creative. Shaking off the stiffness and formality of the Manhattan dining world, chefs in Brooklyn, enjoy more freedom to bend the rules, blend flavors, and reinvent classics to truly tantalize the senses. According to many foodies, Brooklyn has become the true proving ground for restaurants and restaurateurs.

Of course, if you’re in Fort Greene or any of the surrounding neighborhoods, you’ll find few Japanese restaurants that compare to Kinjo; whether you’re looking for artisanal, one-of-a-kind cocktails, traditional noodle dishes made of all organic, locally sourced ingredients, freshly rolled sushi or adventurous fusion concepts, Head Chef Jeffrey Moon has a delicious creation for you.
