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.
I realized I didn’t have much of a selection of vegan/vegetarian options on Sip, Chat, Chow so I went straight to the source- my boss, Russell Simmons.
Ever wonder why Russell always looks so young, fit and healthy? Besides yoga, he credits his diet.
Check out his Vegan Sip, Chat, Chow!
I haven’t been to Jewel Bako in a couple of years but it seems as though this place hasn’t missed a beat since my last visit. The fabulous tunnel-like interior adds a warmth to the jewel-box size room. This chic Japanese resto offers a unique variety of sushi. Don’t come here if you’re craving chicken teriyaki…. but if you’re a sushi snob, you’ll feel right at home!
The food is delicate, fresh, complex and tasty- all within a wonderful presentation, topped off with terrific service. The best deal on the menu is the chef’s choice omakase- you can’t go wrong.
This eclectic Korean narrow haunt of many always hits the spot! David Chang really has a knack for blending wonderfully bold flavors and textures. I’m not a huge fan of sweet and savory but Chang always seems to find the right balance. I’ve been a lot, and for this quick lunch I tried two new things- the monkfish and the ham.
Pork Buns: Never disappoints!
