Yuba comes to us by way of 2 former Masa (the critically acclaimed Japanese resto) alums – serving modern Japanese fare. It’s a casual, chill spot glammed up with culinary delights such as wagyu skewers and caviar-topped oysters.

There was a thoughtful presentation to each course. I loved the plates and flatware.

The menu has traditional Japanese dishes along with more unique delights featuring high-end ingredients and influences from China and Italy.

CHOW FAVES:


Oysters with Caviar- Plenty juicy and tender.

Mushrooms- Lacking in flavor and a bit too dry.

Soup Infused Pork Steamed Dumplings- Delicious!

Risotto Style Lobster Rice with Black Truffle- I enjoyed the dish but it was in serious need of SALT!

Sushi- Extremely fresh.

Cucumber Roll topped with Hamachi and Jalapeno- Big fan of this roll!

THE SWEET SPOT:

Yuzu Cheesecake- A wonderful light option for dessert. It was smooth and creamy with a lemon twist, and the sponge cake added a nice layer of texture.

SIP: They don’t have their liquor license yet so it was BYOB.

CHAT: I’d definitely give Yuba another try. They are still working out a few kinks.

Yuba- 105 E. 9th St / 212-777-8288
