Zutto, a place which may sound familiar to New Yorkers who have tried searching for sushi downtown, has served Japanese raw-fare for more than 30 years in Tribeca. What’s different now? Although the location and name are the same, exciting things are happening to their menu.
The new chef, Joshua Smookler, is developing a new concept which he hopes will succeed in the ever-changing restaurant industry. Still serving sushi, Smookler has also changed this establishment into a Japanese American izakaya-like pub (an izakaya is typically known as a Japanese drinking establishment that pairs food and drink together) that is quickly becoming the place to have ramen and other innovative cuisine.
