Time Out says

Bessou’s clever take on Japanese comfort food has us craving dishes beyond standard sushi. Owner Maiko Kyogoku, who worked for contemporary artist Takashi Murakami, opened a stylish space in Noho for chef Emily Yuen’s innovative plates, many of which draw from Kyogoku’s family recipes. Yuen adds a modern twist on a classic with her chicken karaage dusted with Moroccan spices—trust us, you won’t be able to resist dipping each forkful into the spicy mayo. We quickly learned that Bessou lives up to its name, which loosely translates from Japanese as ‘second home.'
