First it was the Berlin Inn, in Brooklyn; then it became Brooklyn House. Now it's Brooklyn Sushi. New cuisine!

RITA A. LEONARD - Sushi Chef Albert Chen has opened his own new Hamono Sushi Restaurant in the former space of the Berlin Inn and the Brooklyn House, on S.E. 12th. The building at 3131 S.E. 12th Avenue in Brooklyn, a block east of Brooklyn Pharmacy, was once the home of the Berlin Inn; and later, of the Brooklyn House Restaurant. After a period of inactivity there, it has re-opened as "Hamono Sushi" – a dining spot featuring Japanese BBQ and Sushi. For aficionados of this classic style of dining, the menu includes appetizers, Hibachi entrees, Nigiri and sushi specials, poke bowls, and a variety of specialty seafood dishes and classic sushi rolls.

The new restaurant is closed on Wednesdays, but is open on the remaining four weekdays from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m,, and on weekends from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. You can dine in (8 seats available during the pandemic) or on their front patio (16 seats) – or call them at 503/782-6072 to arrange takeout.

Owner and Sushi Chef Albert Chen supervises two employees at the new restaurant. For more information, go online –
