THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Geisha Restaurant Review

: THIS RESTAURANT IS CHANGING LOCATIONS This Upper East Side sushi spot has two levels: the upper is an inviting and pleasant place for fine dining, and the lower is a raucous, crowded and loud lounge. Both have their admirers, some of whom overlap. Kampachi (amberjack) sashimi and fluke nigiri-sushi is first-rate in texture and temperature, and a spicy tuna roll with cucumber, kaiware sprouts and scallions is a fine spark to the appetite, as is a caterpillar roll of freshwater eel, toasted sesame seeds and creamy avocado. Enjoy the grilled shrimp lollipop marinated in coriander, ginger and scallions and served on a sugar cane skewer. Black tiger shrimp dumplings sound fearsome but are delicate ravioli with shrimp and coriander stuffing with roasted pumpkin and a lovely, slightly spicy green curry broth. Western and Eastern fusion has striking results here, especially in the roasted lobster served with udon noodles, portobello mushrooms and asparagus. Almost as noteworthy is baked red snapper with spicy Korean broth and Chinese broccoli. Desserts at Geisha complement the entire menu, like a yuzu millefeuille with kumquat confit.
