Kyo Ya or ? (seafood on a Tuesday)
Looks like SO and I might be in the same place at the same time.
He suggested Kyo Ya.
Any other suggestions for seafood? Preferably downtown (EV, LES, TriBeCa). No Greek, no Chinatown. Easy for me to get a reservation.
Maybe Upstate? Grey Lady?
I also had trout with pear and radicchio at Lupa years ago. Memorable.
Thanks for your help.
We ended up at Kyo Ya. The Zen like atmosphere is restorative. At one point it did get a little loud, though.
The highlights were cherry smoked anago (eel) and ankimo daikon simmered monkfish liver with daikon radish in sweet soy sauce. Amazing.
We also had fresh sea urchin. I had sea urchin once before at another restaurant and it was not good. Now I know how it should be.
Ebi shinjo - bite sized shrimp mousse balls and vegetables in thick broth.
Seasonal kamadaki rice cooked in clay pot. We had a choice of seafood (razor clams and ? OR ?). Delicious. Takes 45 minutes.
We had 2 desserts. A distant memory now.
A relaxing few hours. Service was excellent. Expensive, but so worth it.
PS Many thanks to Kathryn . . .how we discovered Kyo Ya :)
