The excellent kaiseki omakase is an amazing $135 well spent. Opt for the wagyu beef if offered ($68 additional).
Awarded one star (★) in the 2015 Michelin Guide for NYC restaurants.
The food was good but perhaps overhyped. Servers had attitude problems too, so I didn't particularly enjoy my meal... How disappointing!
Sashimi and wagyu 👍🏻
The vegetarian tasting menu was ver fulfilling and filled with unique flavors
A different japanese that you must visit if you're in town , let them help you with the menu !!!
Best kaiseki in the city
Only the winter kaiseki menu was available - the chef's omakase was not being served.
Portions are just right for 8 course meal. Spectacular service
Exceptional food, nice space too, going for the kaiseki tasting is best.
Must go with the kaiseki menu
The BEST Japanese restaurant in the U.S.
HORRIBLE RUDE SERVICE AND TERRIBLE SASHIMI AVOID
Wow! Amazing kaiseki. So delish. Their lunch tasting menu is $55 and worth every penny. Beautiful presentation, great service and a nice slow pace means you can relax and really enjoy the food.
If you're doing the Lunch Tasting menu order the Jumbo Oyster as the appetizer, Cod & Octopus as the entre, Salmon Sashimi in Wasabi Puree as the rice entre and Matcha Ice Cream for dessert.
Omakase!! It was one of the best meals I've ever had.
Tasting menu, summer kaiseki
20$ martini?!? Great food but still overpriced, not quite justified.
As of this date Foursquare is not up-to-date with the restaurant hours. Brushstroke is now open for lunch from 11:30-2:45 Tuesday thru Saturday.
recommended by zohar, supr good but pricy. take the tasting menu
It was lovely, but for half the money you could go to Sugiyama, for twice the money you could go to Masa. It felt like a half-measure. The wine/sake pairings were excellent though, with nice rarities.
Tokyo-trained chef Eiji Ichimura churns out classic, Tokyo-style sushi. Bridging the gap between experimental and traditional, each meal is customized to the diner’s cravings.
Ladies - enjoy the bathroom experience - the full experience. :)
Sit at the bar to watch the kitchen action.
Expect high-end ingredients in copious portions. Sashimi may be monkfish liver, giant clam, uni, or osetra caviar. – Green Guide Editor
enjoyed their cuisine. Nice to find something closer to what you would get in Japan- you'd probably pay more in Japan too Recommend and will be back
Order the PawPaw ice cream desert! Incredible!
Get the kaiseki menu, and while you're at it I highly recommend getting the wine and sake pairing to elevate your dining experience.
While certainly not making it easier on your wallet, the wine and sake pairing will enhance your dining experience manifold. Git it.
David Bouley’s newest sushi spot, run by chef Isao Yamada, is easily the best place in New York for kaiseki, the elaborate Japanese tasting menu. Tokyo superstars Super Potato designed the space.
Great kaiseki ryori in NYC. Richard, captain and his back waiter Emily know their stuff. Takemoto-san arrived from Osaka one month ago & his authentic style shines through in the kitchen & its food.
Sit by the open kitchen and make sure you try the chawan-mushi egg custard, sesame infused cod, crab and lobster rice, the imo dumpling and the green tea pudding dessert

A kaiseki restaurant with extraordinary menus. Prices are very high but definitely worths that.
The Fuji Apple drink is amazing especially for the fall/winter nights.
Try seasonal menu and German's and Austrian's Riesling 1990
Michelin 2012 ★
Delicious, but extremely expensive. For the money you expect a transcendent experience but it falls short.
Kaiseki style Japanese prepared in an open kitchen
