At lunchtime, Hakubai is your basic Midtown Japanese restaurant. But in the evening, it transforms itself into one of the few places in New York serving traditional Japanese Kaiseki cuisine. Dinners are a progression of artful presentations served on hand-painted porcelain and pottery and in lacquer bowls and boxes.Recommended Dishes
Kaiseki dinner, $98-$170
