BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — A new restaurant is bringing Japanese dishes to Malcolm X Boulevard.
Japanese tapas restaurant Trad Room — short for “Traditional Room” — is planned for 266 Malcolm X Blvd., near the corner of Halsey Street, and will serve a variety of raw and hot dishes, according to the owners.
“There’s no loud music, just people talking, sitting, enjoying each other,” co-owner Anna Son said at a community board meeting, adding that the business would have the vibe of a “different era.”
“What we are looking for is to be out of touch from all the media and craziness, just being with each other and have some small dishes or drinks.”
The 1,300-square-foot space will have room for 15 people at the bar and additional table seating for 50 diners, the owners said.

Though the menu is not finalized, co-owner Mirei Yanagawa said she envisions options like fresh-shucked oysters, clams, homemade pickles, vegetable tempura and sashimi.
Other items like grilled whole fish and chicken may be offered as well.
Yanagawa, who also heads udon eatery Raku in the East Village, said she hopes to open Trad Room by February or March.
Brooklyn’s Community Board 3 gave the green light for the business’ liquor license, which requires final approval from the State Liquor Authority.
