brushstroke

A collaborative effort between Chef David Bouley and Japan’s Tsuji Culinary Institute, Brushstroke presents an inspired modern adaptation of Kyoto's kaiseki cuisine; seasonally focused tasting & A la carte menus that change throughout the year. Lunch and Dinner is available

Our menus offered in the main dining room showcase a wide range of Japanese cuisine; from the delicate use of vegetables to sashimi, rice and wagyu. Options include Chef Yamada's 8 Course Kaiseki menu starting at $135 per person and a 8 Course Vegetarian Tasting menu starting at $120 per person, and an A la carte menu. The Kaiseki Restaurant features sashimi but not sushi.

Sushi is offered exclusively with Ichimura at Brushstroke where Chef Eiji Ichimura showcases an Omakase menu, starting at $195 per person.
****Sushi bar reservations cannot be booked on-line, they can only be made by calling (212)791-3771 and require a credit card to hold.****

"The Sommelier ruined the experience, in less than 10 seconds of sitting down he asked for drinks, without letting first settle down in our seats and take a look the wine menu, I wouldn't mind hearing his recommendations and I was actually thinking of ordering a bottle...after he attitude I settle down for beer and sake...in the other hand the waiters were awesome, the timing and manner superb!"

"Brushstroke is a restaurant that I have previously rated 5 stars, but this time, although everything was well prepared, the dishes lacked vibrancy, and were a little flat. We had the kaiseki dinner, $135, and were particularly disappointed in the sashimi upgrade, $45. The slices had a slightly granular texture, as if they had been previously frozen. The choice of salmon for the fish course was disappointing. The lamb main course was very good.
We were also unhappy with the in your face sommelier. The list of sakes is very expensive, and the sommelier was pushing hard to sell one that was quite expensive. When asked for another recommendation, he selected a slightly less expensive one, and proceeded to forcefully disparage it. The correct approach is to start out less expensive, explain the virtues of the selection, and then explain why a more expensive bottle might be better."
