Sushi Katsuei

If I’ve learned anything in my forty-eight years, it’s that I have a lot to learn. Though I live but a few blocks from Sushi Katsuei, I never knew that it “serves the best sushi in Brooklyn,” if  The Infatuation is to be believed. The place only opened in 2013, and I’ve been busy these past few years with my kids and my cooking and my drawing, so I can forgive myself my ignorance. You, however, now know better. Follow the Times’ advice, and “Bypass the tables under white cloth in favor of the counter, and the menu in favor of omakase: chef decides. … The approach is classical, the lineup one all-star after another: hamachi dimpling from pink to red under a daub of fresh wasabi, chopped until half liquid; scallop stroked with lemon; king salmon on the verge of abandoning solidity.” All I need to do now is sell a few prints. (210 7th Ave., Brooklyn. 212-788-5338.)

Life is Short-Art is Long

But There's a Quick Way

While it can take four weeks or more to make, sign, and ship a print, if you need something right away, I will email you a one-sheet about the series. You can print it at home, roll it up, and put a ribbon on it!
