Michelin Chef Eiji Ichimura has departed and new Chef Isao Yamada is serving a Sushi (Modern) Kaiseki Menu. The fish and seafood was excellent featuring items sourced from Japan - Hokkaido (Eel, Scallops, Squid) or locally - Long Island (Sea Bass, Squid). Attractively presented in ceramics or Sake boxes. It helps to know a little Japanese as a few dish... More

Beautiful glowing room. Lots of wood. Prize fixe menu very good. Time consuming and complex, FYI. Delicious but you have to be in right frame of mind.

Every course was good or very good but it was wasn't at the level of outstanding. At these prices, we just expected to be wowed and we weren't. Service was also very good, but just seemed to lack a bit of polish.

This is Japanese turned on an axis. In a good way. We tried the kaiseki and every dish was a feast of flavors. Definitely try the sushi/wine pairing to elevate the dinner into the beyond!

We were sorely disappointed by our dinner here. Spending 500 between the two of us, the food was just ..okay. The service not at all close to reflecting the price... Japanese flavors obviously dominated but they were torn apart by discordant flavors and techniques. Pieces of most dishes felt disparate and flavors did not meld. Clearly high end food like... More

The set menu is full of surprises with taste combinations I never had before. It is not too much but an excellent variety. I just loved the surprises. The service was good.

It is a wonderful kaiseki experience that provides fresh ingredients and attentive service that gradually leads you to the climax at the end of the meal...the Roasted Green Tea pudding with Kuromame Beans and Buckwheat Kernels. It is one of the best desserts that I have had in my life. It is simple, but when you take your spoon and... More

It does feel like you are in Japan including the prices. I asked the sommelier to suggest a wine and he suggested a Riesling for $320 and then waited for a response. I wound up picking one myself for $120 . We did the kaisike menu for$200 but the up charges were priced just crazy. The up charge on the... More

A collaborative effort of Chef David Bouley and Japan’s Tsuji Culinary Institute, Brushstroke presents an inspired modern adaptation of Kyoto's kaiseki cuisine: seasonally focused tasting menus that change throughout the year. Kaiseki menus in the main dining room showcase a wide range of Japanese cuisine, from delicate use of vegetables to sashimi, rice and wagyu. Options include the chef’s artisanal kaiseki menu ($135), the shorter tasting menu ($85) and the fully vegetarian tasting menu ($85). Please note that we do not offer a la carte. Sushi is offered exclusively in a separate area, where Chef Eiji Ichimura presents omakase ($160+) sushi dining. Reservations for sushi are not available online.

Neighbourhood Profile
What’s in a name? In this case it is the unique title of “Triangle Below Canal Street” that became a popular nickname in the 1970s. An attractive neighbourhood filled with handsome lofts on the edge of the Financial District, this lovely slice of Manhattan offers plenty of fine dining experiences and art galleries. Plus, it’s home to the city’s most exciting film event, the Tribeca Film Festival, that takes place here every year. TriBeCa is a great place to take a leisurely stroll before stopping into one of the many local restaurants or bars for a satisfying meal and cocktail. You’ll see families out for an afternoon walk, and don’t be surprised to come up with the occasional celebrity sighting. With such a great vibe, many of the city’s most famous residents call this neighbourhood home.
