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 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. Don't leave before having some Goma Matcha, with black sesame mousse and blood orange sorbet. Pair your meal with saké, a wine from the thoughtful list, or a Morimoto signature beer made in partnership with Rogue Ales.
