10 hours in Manhattan - Sushi Yasuda and another tasting menu?
Hi everyone, it's a bit crazy, but I get a few hours in New York on my upcoming trip. I'm planning on getting the omakase at 15 East, but was contemplating the possibility of getting in a second tasting menu later that same evening.
Say I start at Sushi Yasuda at 6pm. Would it be possible to then do a tasting menu at Ai Fiori 10:15pm? Does anyone have favorite tasting menus around the $150 range and is open late? No specific cuisine. I went to Jungsik on my last trip and it was so good I'd consider going there again this time, but maybe I should try something different.
And yes, it's a bit of a crazy idea, but I can eat quite a lot while on vacation (see my last trip report). I'm pretty sure I can eat 15 pieces of sushi and be okay to eat a second dinner a few hours later. Am I just woefully unprepared for how full I will be after Sushi Yasuda? Maybe for the second dinner, I can ask that any heavy beef/lamb/venison dish be substituted for something lighter.
Wow, that might be too much for me! I think I'd need a few hours between meals to walk around and digest a bit.
I hear lots of good things about Tocqueville though. Of the three tasting menus, which would you suggest? Chef's Tasting, five-course, or seven-course? Would you recommend that over Ai Fiori?
Wow, that is an aggressive and yet an awesome idea. I am sometimes hungry immediately after leaving Yasuda and eating 20+ pieces...so if you have a hearty appetite you should be fine.
Perhaps stay in the same theme/flow and go to Kyo Ya? That would be quite a decadent double header. Or Momofuku Ko?
