The great man is not always behind the bar these days (his ambitious restaurant empire is ever-expanding), and thanks to a variety of factors (climate change, vanishing fish, etc.) the unique range of his sushi offerings is not what it used to be. But if you happen to have $1,000 ($595 for the most basic dinner, plus tax and the inevitable flutes of Champagne) burning a hole in your pocket, this great omakase temple is still worth visiting, provided you sit at the bar, not the dreary tables.


Reservations are taken a month in advanceóthe only seats that matter are those at the bar in front of the chef. The dinner tasting menu costs a minimum of $595 per person and does not include tax, tip, or drinks. Or you can try Bar Masa next door, which has a no-reservation policy and far gentler pricing.
