Profile

This venue is closed.

This is Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto's second attempt to leave a lasting mark on the same Tribeca property (his first, Tribeca Canvas, closed after awful reviews). While predecessor Tribeca Canvas’s interior was light and arboreal, Bisutoro resembles a Vegas transplant: There’s a red-light graffiti mural, blown-up tattoo designs, and a mishmash Japanese-American menu. On the bright side, the space easily seats dates and groups with wraparound banquettes and an upstairs party space. But it's better to come here for cocktails than for a full-blown meal. The chilled rock-crab-avocado opener served between two flaky za’atar biscuits recalls spicy tuna salad rather than top-flight sashimi, while mushroom-onion soup dumplings are deflated. For the entrée, skip the wagyu burger and instead opt for the satisfying, crunchy fried tofu. House cocktails are exceptional: Homemade brandy cherries add depth to a smooth Manhattan.
