Long before you’ve taken your first bite of Ninja’s Japanese-French-American fusion fare, you’ll have fully experienced the highpoints of this Tribeca Disneyland. Guests are whisked into the subterranean space by elevator, led to the dining area via a secret path (peopled by live “ninjas” poised to scare the living daylights out of you), then brought to the recesses of a feudal castle where each dungeonlike chamber houses a single table with a menu offering plenty of fried apps, sushi rolls and teriyaki options. After some over-the-top dessert, like a bonsai tree made of mango mousse and crushed chocolate sponge cake, the meal concludes with a lengthy magic show from yet another ninja, this time armed with a deck of cards.Extra
Five prix-fixe menus (written on scrolls) ranging from $38-$68 are available.
