A new sushi bar and restaurant has recently opened its doors in Hunters Point.

Dai Hachi Sushi, located at 46-18 Vernon Blvd., boasts a large variety of sushi, rolls, and other Japanese cuisine in an eight-page menu. It opened on Oct. 3 at the former site of the longstanding Junior’s Cafe, which closed last year after a two-decade run.

The restaurant’s manager was not available when reached, but a staffer said the site can seat around 50 people. The new restaurant, additionally, is the second Dai Hachi location, with its first in Midtown East.

The a la carte menu includes tuna, salmon, sea urchin, yellow tail, octopus, among roughly 30 items, priced between $2 and $6.50. Sushi bar entrees are also available with assorted pieces, soups, or salads, from $18 ranging to large combos for two for $70.

Other menu items include bento boxes and entrees like teriyaki, tempura, katsu, and Asian fusion dishes like General Tso’s Chicken and beed with broccoli.

Dai Hachi is open every day from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

There’s way too much mediocre Japanese food on Vernon. Let’s see how long this place lasts.


Oh, please. Most people who moved to NYC were eating pot noodles a couple of years ago in their dorm rooms, and now everyone is such a high falutin’ goddamn food critic. Both Murasaki and Sushi Daizen are good places, and the ramen in our neighborhood is fine too.


I heard they are naming a sushi roll in honor of Trump called “Grab ‘Em by the Panko”

Apr. 11, 2024 By Council Member Robert Holden

In 2019, the State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo embarked on a controversial overhaul of New York’s criminal justice system by enacting several laws, including cashless bail and sweeping changes to discovery laws. Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
