Read Gayot's Restaurant Review of Masa

New York’s most extravagant and rarefied Japanese dining experience may be had at Masa, at a price of $450 per person. Gourmands flock to this sacred sushi spot for exotic seafood and premium fish flown in daily from Japan and to savor the profoundly artful landscape of flavors Masayoshi Takayama brings to every omakase-style experience. While Masa may be considered the best Japanese restaurant in America, Takayama’s protégé Hiroyuki Urasawa joins his master in the Top 40 at his Beverly Hills eponymous restaurant, Urasawa.
