Time Out says
Nestled in Lower East Side Manhattan, Kissaki is a recent addition to New York’s food scene. With a minimalistic sushi bar, the restaurant is home to traditional Japanese cuisine, particularly with its omakase dining experience which means guests pretty much leave themselves, and their meal, in the hands of the chef who artistically pulls it together in front of them.
Alongside omakase, the restaurant also uses the kaiseki cooking method which is dedicated to harmony between the seasons and the food we eat. As a result, the menu focuses on all things fresh, local and seasonal and has featured the likes of fried eggplant and squash soup.
The chefs also accommodate dietary restrictions, but fyi: the menus here do contain food allergens found in raw fish, shellfish, wheat, soy, diary, peanuts, tree nuts and eggs.
Our restaurant is designed to take diners on a culinary expedition through their senses. We welcome you into the warmth of Kissaki for a unique experience at our 16 seat counter. The restaurant roots itself in omakase sushi and kaiseki tradition and bases its dishes in mindful sourcing, seasonality, and quality.
Executive Chef Mark Garcia draws from his rich experience to cultivate a communal counter where everyone feels at home. Our team will uphold the highest standard of service, knowledge, and hospitality.
