    The black cod is one of the best dishes I have had. So naturally buttery and flavorful. Melts in your mouth. This dish is a must try.

    Resto is extremely well lit at lunch with its large windows on the corner of hudson and leroy. The lunch sets offer great value vs. the dinner menu. The sashimi set was expertly done and satisfying.

    Get the black truffle chawanmushi (egg custard), anything with uni, the tofu salad, and the salmon rice pot. Just trust. Reserve tatami rooms in the back for a big group.

    Delicious as expected. IWe were unsure of the ice cream sandwich dessert but really enjoyed it. If you're stuffed and want a lighter dessert that's still satisfying this is it!

    Order the fresh tofu appetizer the second you sit down as there'll be a wait. Get the fried chicken and shabu shabu salad to start, then uni don, miso cod, and pork belly. Go big or go home, right?

    The Uni Don special is very worth trying. I had never had sea urchin before, but I thought this was prepared tremendously with the roe, the wasabi and the seaweed.

    The space is really cool: high ceilings, cozy furniture and no music (shocker!). The food was really good: we tried the fried tofu and it was mind blowing. Then salmon rice and another tofu salad.

    When in NY, I must have EN's salmon rice bowl. Rice is cooked with salmon for 40 min. It's come with roe & shredded shiso. It's insanely simple but tragically delicious. Cheaper option: garlic rice.
