Sushi by Bou Suite 1001 Restaurant Review

About the restaurant & décor: If you’ve ever wanted to be part of a secret foodie society as it relates to a restaurant, joining the Sushi by Bou crowd is for you. You’ll need to be computer-savvy and constantly in the know to score a reservation at this four-seat sushi bar, overseen by some of the savviest sushi chefs in the city, and hidden in a hotel room at Hotel 3232 in NoMad. If you succeed in getting a reservation for this choice counter, you’ll enter the hotel lobby where you’ll be given a hotel room key and sent by elevator to begin your experience. The hotel room has been transformed into an intimate salon-restaurant, with only the aforementioned sushi bar, some comfortable chairs for lounging, and access to a small outdoor bar with a view of the Empire State Building.

Likes: One-of-a-kind sushi experience.
Dislikes: Difficult to score a reservation.

Food & Drinks: In sixty minutes, and for a flat $100, you will enjoy a privileged 17-course omakase with selections by the chef to include the likes of hamachi, o-toro, bincho and chutoro, as well as uni. There is only a rice cooker and refrigeration for the fish, but you’ll have a meal that you’ll long remember. Whatever is freshest and of the highest quality is on the menu and it’s presented one dish at a time with as much explanation as you request. Everything is timed precisely and once your allotted hour is up, you’ll be escorted away from the sushi bar. No dessert. A brief creative cocktail list and saké are offered, as are a few wines by the glass.
