Le Zoo & Tartine
re: Barry Strugatz
Though I did not go to Japanese restaurants in NY so
often (because I was busy sampling every cuisine from
all over the world :-)), I hope I can give you some
For sushi, Sushisay is a very good place. They serve
good, authentic sushi.Maybe a little bit expensive,
but worth a visit.
If you wanna try Japanese-bistro-type cuisine (we do
not eat sushi every day), Go to Hasaki.You can have
some good sake there too.
For Japanese noodle (buckwheat noodle with soy sauce
based soup), probably Honmura-an is the best place.
If you care for Japanese sweets, Toraya and Tea box
are the place.But it's a shame they are more expensive
than Belgian chocolates.
Though they are not considered Japanese, I think March
serves excellent "Japan meets West" type food.I love
OK so no one seems to know these restaurants Hiro!
Tartine is doing great! The owner opened another little
bistro down the block called Titou and it is also
wonderful--very romantic and tasty! Some of the
waitresses at Tartine have left (both a nasty one and a
nice one unfortunately). I know why you miss these
places--I would too if I left new york!
