NY TIMES Dining & Wine: Stamping With a Smile of Approval By LIGAYA MISHAN



Three chefs stand behind the counter at Sushi Katsuei, neckties tucked inside white coats, eyes downcast. The rest of the room clatters, but they work in silence, as if of one clear mind. There is no hierarchy, no need for diners to jockey for position in front of one or another. From each chef will come the same pristine pieces of fish, sliced, patted and delivered with an economy of motion and, just possibly, a slip of a smile.

There is life outside Manhattan when it comes to top-notch sushi, and I learned that this past weekend at Candice’s birthday at Katsuei in Park Slope.

This is serious high-quality sushi without Manhattan prices. So if you want to save a pretty penny, the trek might be worth it. Better yet, if you’re already in Brooklyn, this is a must try. It’s borderline on par with the likes of Sushi Yasuda — clean, fresh, straightforward sushi that lets its quality speak for itself.
