Osakana will be a Japanese-style fish retailer dedicated to providing high-quality, local, and seasonal seafood to the community. Here, customers will find fresh, expertly sourced fish, prepared and presented with respect by the team behind Okonomi.

While New York has witnessed a recent flourishing of artisanal butcher shops, the number of local fish purveyors has noticeably diminished, despite the city’s proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. Our aim is to help diversify the local food economy and revive the city’s connection with its neighboring ocean.

To do this, Osakana will not only offer a careful selection of local seafood for customers to purchase, but it will also provide a community space in which people can learn more about these ingredients through discussions, meals, tastings, and classes. We’ve discovered that a certain gratification comes from deepening our understanding of the food we consume. One of our goals is to help foster and spread that understanding.

Thank you to everyone who supported our Kickstarter campaign to open OSAKANA! Construction is now underway and we hope to be open for fish retail by August 2016.

「魚をどこで買ったらいいですか?」

私たちはお客様から日々質問を受けます。

残念ながら、お勧めできる魚屋さんはNYにはありません。

NYは海に囲まれているのにも関わらず、鮮度の良い魚を買えないのは非常に残念です。

なので、私たちは私たちの「OSAKANA」屋さんを開くことを決めました。

その日に仕入れた鮮度の良い魚のみを、丁寧に処理し、お客様の用途に合わせてその場で切り分けます。

もちろんお刺身用にも準備いたします。お客様が魚のおろし方や簡単な魚料理を勉強出来るクラスも提供いたします。

魚を愛する日本人がNYに住んでも困らないようこの「OSAKANA」をブルックリンでオープンします。
