HELP! I need a nice Japanese lunch near MET Museum tomorrow!
Please help me, I can only come up with places on Third Ave. For very nice European friends who I missed seeing tonight. I need to make up nice tomorrow!
I live in that area, and nice Japanese places are hard to find. I haven't been to Ito En, but it does look beautiful. Someone else recommended Sachi, on Madison and 93rd or so, recently, but my one experience there years ago was not a great one, and I think it's rather dumpy looking.
If you are able to travel a bit, we really enjoy Gajyumaru, on 1st Avenue just north of 86th Street on the west side of the avenue. The decor is minimalist, in a good way, lovely service, and great food.
