The Japanese superlounge—which had locations in Tribeca and midtown before shuttering in 2014—is in similarly clubby company in lower Chelsea, also home to perennial playboy-favorites Tao and Buddakan. Taking over the former Cherry space at Dream Downtown, the 5,000-square-foot, 145-seat revamp comes courtesy of Beautique restaurateur Jon Bakhshi, who bought rights to the global chain last year. Bakhshi has tapped Top Chef alum Francis Tariga-Weshnak (Catch) to oversee a menu of modern-Japanese plates like sweet-potato ravioli with kombu foam; crab-pineapple rolls with yuzu mayo; and Tatsuta chicken with pickled eggplant.

I love Megu!!  I went on a Monday for the whiskey pairings, but they have sake specials on Monday's too.  The food was fantastic, came out piping hot, service was attentive and kind. The ambiance is obviously a huge plus being this is in the Dream.  Highly recommend.
