    Brushstroke’s meat-free, stylized cuisine is an edible work of art — and pretty delicious, too. Order the Japanese “black” rice, beneath portobello mushrooms, corn, chives and yuba. Read more

    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.

    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.

    Brushstroke’s meat-free, stylized cuisine is an edible work of art — and pretty delicious, too. Stylized Japanese creations led off a lineup that killed until just before the end. ★★★ 1/2 Read more

    Excellent Kaiseki tasting experience! Especially loved the corn soup and the Hassun dishes. Matcha ice cream with white chocolate sauce was a perfect finish. Highly recommend!

    The offerings change regularly, but expect visually striking dishes like mountain yam floating in a pristine tomato gelée, tuna sashimi, and pork cheeks stretching over a velvety green apple purée. Read more

    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.

    The restaurant, a collaboration with Osaka’s Tsuji Cooking Academy, brings kaiseki cuisine—an intricate, formal multicourse feast—into a surprisingly relaxed and accessible setting. Read more

    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

    David Bouley has added an edomae-style sushi bar to his Japanese restaurant, Brushstroke, manned by sushi pro Eiji Ichimura, who ran his own spot in midtown until 2008. Read more

    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.

    chawanmushi!! louder now.. CHAWANMUSHI!! this is expert skill & artistry in a cup. pro tip: must order the kaiseki menu. there's no point coming here if you're not going to get a taste of everything.

    The excellent kaiseki omakase is an amazing $135 well spent. Opt for the wagyu beef if offered ($68 additional).

    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

    Hi, sit in the bar, have the wagyu beef and the oyster appetizer. The staff is friendly, introduce yourself, when you call, they will let you know if there are seats in the bar.

    Lunch set menu helps whiners stop complaining about the prices here. It's worth it

    Expect high-end ingredients in copious portions. Sashimi may be monkfish liver, giant clam, uni, or osetra caviar. – Green Guide Editor

    Get the kaiseki menu, and while you're at it I highly recommend getting the wine and sake pairing to elevate your dining experience.

    Highly sophisticated and inventive Japanese food, Brushstroke offers two exquisite tasting menus to choose from. Notable dish: Lobster-rice.

    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.

    Useful to know that in the dining room and sushi bar area, only the Tasting menu is available, you can not order a la carte.

    While certainly not making it easier on your wallet, the wine and sake pairing will enhance your dining experience manifold. Git it.

    Delicious, but extremely expensive. For the money you expect a transcendent experience but it falls short.

    Guessing based on service they had temp staff on vday. Food=great. Took an hour for drinks. Course order kept getting messed up. People walking out in frustration​. 175/head expect better service.

    The food was good but perhaps overhyped. Servers had attitude problems too, so I didn't particularly enjoy my meal... How disappointing!
