The small stretch of Sheepshead Bay Road between East 13th Street and East 14th Street may have been the only part of the strip below Avenue Z without a sushi restaurant.

No longer!

Osaka Sushi Express will soon open at 1328 Sheepshead Bay Road. We caught them putting the sign up this morning, on what used to be a video rental store.

We’re not sure if this place is at all connected to Osaka Japanese Restaurant at 2805 Avenue U. It’s possible, but we guess it’s also possible that we’ve cycled through the entire list of generic sushi restaurant names.

Brooklyn Restaurant Week is rolling around again. The dates of the 2010 event are set for March 15 to the 25. Last year we told you that the Sheepshead Bay had slim pickings when it came to participation in the prix fixe dinners and lunches. This year, Clemente’s Maryland Crabhouse does not appear on the list, but there is an added brunch deal, as well as a designation for the few Kosher offerings (look for the ‘K’ in a light blue circle). Below is a list of the local offerings, or visit the ‘Visit Brooklyn’ website and see the full list, in case you are looking to venture out of Sheepshead Bay.

Restaurant Weeks are usually held only on weekdays from Monday through Friday, but the flyer does not specifically list this limitation. You might want to to check with each restaurant, before making your plans. There may be a few of those restaurants that even extend the specials beyond March 25.

Here is a list of the restaurants participating in the neighborhood:

Baku Palace L D
2001 Emmons Avenue
718-615-4700

IL Fornetto Restaurant D and Lunch for 2 special
2902 Emmons Avenue
718-332-8494

Liman Restaurant L
2710 Emmons Avenue
718-769-3322

Osaka Japanese Restaurant L D
2805 Avenue U
718-891-6200

In two weeks, the Dine In Brooklyn fork will dip into Sheepshead Bay. Participating restaurants are:

Baku Palace
2001 Emmons Avenue
718-615-4700

Clemente’s Maryland Crabhouse D
3939 Emmons Avenue
718-646-7373

Liman Restaurant L
2710 Emmons Avenue
718-769-3322

Osaka Japanese Restaurant
2805 Avenue U
718-891-6200

While we don’t have as many restaurants participating — as in, let’s say, trendy Williamsburg or hip Park Slope — we do have a few.

Unless otherwise noted, the restaurants listed above are offering a three-course meal at lunch and dinner for $23. Lunch at the waterfront restaurant, Il Fornetto, is being offered for two at one price (2 for $23).

Restaurant Weeks are usually held only on weekdays from Monday through Friday, but the flyer from the Brooklyn Borough President’s office didn’t specifically list this limitation. You might want to contact Marty Markowitz and ask, since even some restaurant reservationists aren’t too sure.

This recession has caused New York City’s Restaurant Weeks to be extended, with a few even offering the special price on weekend — so, keep on the lookout.
