Shaboo, anyone tried it?


Also, is there anyway to just get an order of the Toro Tartare with beluga caviar without ordering anything else?

  1. Haven't tried it yet but plan to do so on my next trip - probably in November - Anthony Bourdain loves the original (different name) in NYC - to heck with the expense

    1. Yes, we went about 6-7 months ago and, lets just say, I won't be returning any time soon. In fact, the only reason we went was a friend had a comp. Nonetheless, it was very expensive, as is Bar Masa. I heard it is cheaper now, but I wonder what kind of meat they are substituting for the A5. For me, shabu-shabu with prime or even australian wagyu loses some of its appeal. The toro tartare is on the regular menu at BM, I think its about 70 or so bucks. There is also a Masa toro roll w/ caviar for $240. You can just order that if you are so inclined. (in BAr Masa proper).

      FYI Kagemusha, Shaboo at Aria is not even a remotely similar experience as that at Masa in the Time Warner UWS(which I think you are referring). At Shaboo expect a few kaiseki style dishes followed by several courses of shabu-shabu. When we went, there was not a single piece of nigiri served.
