MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
Sushi Katsuei does Park Slope proud flaunting some of the borough’s best sushi, expertly seasoned and sliced. Humming with locals, families and their kids in tow, the mood here is always upbeat and warm. While the counter appears to be reserved for their regular diners, tables are attended to by a cadre of informed servers. The chefs know their stuff as they showcase quality fish, but the menu is equally well-suited to those who just want a spicy tuna roll or a cooked dish. Most stray from the pedestrian and surrender to the omakase, where you will be rewarded with a parade of elevated sushi and sashimi. Tempura dishes are just as enticing, especially the naturally sweet roasted pumpkin. Prices are fantastic for such high quality food.
