House Brooklyn, the eight-seat Japanese French restaurant by Kyoto-native Chef Yuji Tani, arrives at 50 Norman.

The restaurant features a seven to nine-course tasting menu – at a cost of $150 -- which will be available at two seatings per evenings. Dishes will change seasonally, even daily, and incorporate both local and Japanese ingredients with French techniques and a minimalistic Kyoto-style approach.

Designed by the Japanese architect Jo Nagasaka, the restaurant features an eight-seat counter in the back room of 50 Norman, tucked behind the design shop Cibone and enclosed with a sliding wall.

The menu’s signature dishes include the seasonal Apple & Beet crudité served on a pie crust; Stracciatella & Strawberry, a savory course served with a thin layer of crisp “strawberry”; and his final savory course, Foie-Gras Pilaf made with crunchy shibazuke cucumber pickles originating in Kyoto. The menu also includes such desserts as a Basque Cheesecake or Souffle.

The beverage program is curated by a team of Brooklyn friends of Tani. The Sake list is by Chizuko Niikawa of Sake Discoveries; the wine list is by Billy Smith, and the tea list is by Kettl.
