Although it’s been seven years since Superstorm Sandy hit Rockaway, the community is still dealing with rebuilding efforts. One sushi spot is hoping to help out in order to get Rockaway back to its glory at one hundred percent.

Earlier this summer, Michael Sinensky, a partner in the hospitality group Simple Venue along with Erika London, helped to bring fast-casual omakase hotspot Sushi by Bou to Sheepshead Bay. Now, Sushi by Bou is donating 10 percent of all its profits from the location to the Friends of Rockaway, which Sinensky co-founded in 2012.

The funds will help residents who still need help rebuilding their homes in Queens and Brooklyn.

Originally from Rockaway and having attended nearby Midwood High School and Coney Island’s Mark Twain School, Sinensky wants to give back to the community where he grew up.

The Sheepshead Bay location is the group’s eighth location and features the signature-timed 30-minute omakase that allows guests to enjoy this intimate experience at an affordable price, embodying the motto “Sushi for the People.”

The Sheepshead Bay location opened on May 30th, and overlooks the water. It features an eight-seat sushi bar.

The menu includes 10 pieces of nigiri such as Chutoro, Botan Ebi, Ikura, Uni, Unagi and the signature surf-and-turf Wagyuni.

The omakase is complemented by a selection of handcrafted cocktails, imported sake and rare Japanese whiskeys. A selection of teas, coffee and housemade desserts are also available.

Sushi by Bou Sheepshead Bay is located at 1811 Emmons Avenue in Brooklyn.
