Hibino - Best Japanese Food in Brooklyn

Fresh Made Tofu - Hibino Style, originally uploaded by HIBINO Brooklyn.

I write this review with reluctance. I fear that each time I write about a place that I truly like I am making it more difficult to get a seat at my favorite places. But, this is the world of the social Internet and it is important to spread the love around. That being said, i start by saying Japanese food. Not Sushi. In fact I didn't eat any sushi tonight at my new favorite restaurant. Hibino is a hidden neighborhood joint with the recipes transported direct from Kyoto. Each dish melts in your mouth and the service is sharp and relaxed at the same time. The kitchen moves in sync - but -at a very considered pace and the dishes come out one after another in a deliberate progression that makes each one stand out among the whole. The homemade tofu defies gravity and exceeds expectations - beyond belief. I didn't think I really liked tofu before. I guess I never had the real thing! They don't take reservations so get their early, put your name in and then get a drink at nearby Last Exit. Enjoy!

Hibino is one of my favorite restaurants. Their dishes are typical of Kyoto restaurants, which is to say that they're tasty. (I'm Japanese). And I like that they have different dishes daily. Their service is excellent as well.

I love this place! We probably go there once ever week or two and it is a great value and we love that we can bring our stroller and not feel out of place. My only complaint has been that their winter menu is not as tasty as the summer menu but it is still incredible.

I have to restate that I wasn't as impressed with their winter menu but after going there twice in the last two weeks I am taking back my previous statement. Excellent! Excellent! Excellent!
