Mifune is a two-floor, two-concept restaurant in east midtown, serving eye-poppingly priced fish like horse mackerel and Japanese cuisine. Some serious firepower has been assembled here: The main menu is from Hiroki Yoshitake, who worked at Pascal Barbot’s acclaimed Astrance before going on to cook dishes like miso-glazed foie gras at the Michelin-starred Sola. The kitchen will be run day-to-day by Yuu Shimano, who worked at Restaurant Guy Savoy, and will execute dishes like smoked butterfish with garlic green sauce and roasted Wagyu with wasabi and soy sauce. To go with that food, Angel’s Share bartender Shingo Gokan has created expensive ($18 to $20) drinks like the Seven Samurai (rye, aged sake, East India sherry, bitters, and smoke). Downstairs, it’s all about fish. This restaurant-within-the-restaurant, called Sushi Amane, is run by Shion Uino, who spent seven years working at one of Tokyo’s most prestigious and exclusive sushi restaurants, Sushi Saito. For those who can afford one of the eight bar seats or the semi-private room, he’s serving a $250 omakase with appetizers and sushi in the Saito style.
