The Brooklyn Paper
Eric Ong, formerly of Kotobuki Bistro on Columbia Street in Carroll Gardens, opened a new Pan-Asian venture, Nana, two months ago on Fifth Avenue at St. John’s Place. The menu features sushi and sashimi, maki rolls and Nana’s specialty rolls with such esoteric creations as the deep-fried eel with mozzarella prepared tempura style, and yellowtail roll with cilantro in a jalapeno sauce. Entrees include mussels with lemongrass, red onion, okra and basil, and Thai curries with shrimp, eggplant and asparagus.

The design of the space, said Ong, is "modern industrial," which means lots of concrete with fish tanks in the dining room and basement.

On Fridays, a DJ spins electronic house music and on Saturdays patrons can dine to Brazilian and Latin sounds - that’s fusion!

Nana (155 Fifth Ave. at St. John’s Place) accepts cash only. Entrees: $8-$15. The restaurant is open for dinner Sundays-Thursdays, 5 pm to 1 am; Fridays-Saturdays, 5 pm to 2 am. For reservations, call (718) 230-3749.
