Morimoto Restaurant Review

: To best enjoy dining at Masaharu Morimoto’s New York restaurant, don’t hesitate to put yourself in the hands of the sensei. The $120 omakase not only saves precious decision-making minutes on 100-plus items, but chances are you’ll be served the best of a sprawling menu that offers genius alongside the pedestrian, such as the hamachi tartare with osetra caviar, crème fraîche, wasabi and dashi-soy. Aside from the raw menu, the culinary journey may also include a succulent sea bass with Japanese eggplant, a sweet saké kasu and miso or roast duck with a foie gras croissant, soft duck egg and red miso sauce. For an even better experience, snag a spot at the coveted eight-seat omakase bar, where you’ll have your back to the too-bright, sparsely-decorated room. Then, you can feast your eyes where they belong---on the Iron Chef himself in action.
