West Village’s neighborhood restaurant and bar Craft Work has been busy all spring with revamps. The eatery welcomed a new chef, Aaron Solley, in April and slowly introduced a tweaked menu. Now, Craft Work’s owner Hugh Yaro tells Eater the restaurant is adding a new permanent raw bar to its repertoire with oysters, ceviche, crudo, and sushi.

The new additions will be slowly ushered in starting with a sushi pop-up tonight by chef Shinya Hirakawa (previously sous chef for Ronin Sushi in Royal Oak). Craft Work will host Hirakawa’s pop-up every Thursday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. but Yaro expects the raw bar to be fully expanded up-and-running within the next few months. This isn’t the first time Craft Work has experimented with adding sushi to the menu. In 2014 the restaurant began offering a late-night sushi menu with four rolls. Tonight’s menu features a wide variety of nigiri, sashimi, and rolls, as well as appetizers, soups, and salads. Take a peek below.
