Towa opens in NoMad this Tuesday, March 22. Its à la carte menu is fashioned after multi-course Japanese meals with an emphasis on seasonal ingredients. Premiere plates created by chef Masaya Shirai (previously of top NYC sushi restaurant Sushi Azabu) include Wagyu tataki, fried minced shrimp rolls, grilled king crab, sushi, sashimi and hot pot options.
