THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS Megu Restaurant Review

: Megu (which means blessing in Japanese) is set on two levels and 13,000-square-feet of shadowy space. The $6 million restaurant, designed by Yasumichi Morita, is dynamic and sexy, so, as you might imagine, it is also very loud, with 120 speakers set around. The menu is enormous, going from category to category, and owner Koji Imai insists he brings in only the very finest ingredients from all over the world. The proof of all this planning is, of course, in the food. Crown Jewels are the most extravagant items on the menu, like toro steak with white truffle oil and Kobe beef Châteaubriand with fresh wasabi and saké juices. The extensive menu also includes grilled miso-marinated half lobster, crispy shrimp in “kanzuri” spicy cream, and foie gras in crispy Kobe beef croquettes. There are also soups and noodles and an array of better-than-usual French-accented Japanese desserts, including bitter chocolate soufflé with warm ogura azuki cream. The only question is the price: when you choose from this category and that, this page and another, sharing plates of sushi and Kobe beef---in most cases small portions---the bill can mount fearfully.
