Sake + Shochu Talk

located at 360 Van Brunt (get it?) in Red Hook, 360 is one of my very favorite restaurants in NYC. i would call it american nouvelle with french flair-- their head chef always gets really creative with flavors and textures, without going molecular, or overboard on yo ass. they change their menus everyday, so you are guaranteed the freshest ingredients. at $25 for a 3-course prix-fixe (it was $40 total per person after a bottle of wine and tip! WOW!), it's both bargain AND delicious. happy belated birthday, Shirley...

each object, every detail of the interior, down to the numbers "360" drilled into the drain of the bathroom floor, is carefully curated and considered. take a look at the exit sign! awesome.

  • 360 is fantastic from the moment you walk in. The atmosphere is warm, casual, and unpretentious. Thanks Kayoko & Lynn for the birthday treat. Can’t wait to go back!

  • i’ve been there 3 times in the last 4 months. whoa. i just like it THAT MUCH. and seriously, that white chocolate creme pudding with the homemade mint ice cream was like crack. you just never want it to end.

    make sure to make a reservation- it can get pretty packed very quickly!

  • I remember going to 360 about a year ago or so. It was good as I recall, but it certainly didn’t look as good as this! They must have been running frantically in the back like "OMG Umamimart is here! Umamimart is here! " That seriously looked like a great deal.

  • Hey there… awesome photos… will go there as soon as I can… just a quick note, excuse the pedantry, it’s a chicken Galantine… not “B”

  • It closed?! I went there about two years (??) ago but I didn’t think it was so good…I remember getting some “Thai style” mussels that tasted bizarre. How come you got beet and gorgonzola terrine!!!
