Fortunately, Toshio Suzuki wasn’t gone for long. A year after shuttering his 30-year-old Sushi Zen in midtown, the New York sushi icon returns with a new raw-fish restaurant divided into three concepts. There’s a 10-seat omakase counter, where Suzuki prepares a seven-course dinner that includes seasonal dishes like steamed monkfish liver and horsehair crab for $250 per person. Three Pillars, an Imperial-style cocktail bar and lounge, sees cocktail “alchemist” Alex Ott pouring Japanese drinks with “healing” powers, like the gin-and-yuzu Seishun No Izumi, which is said to act as an age reverser and PMS remedy. The third prong, opening in April, is the chef’s namesake kaiseki restaurant, which seats 56 people and is helmed by Sushi Zen alum Takashi Yamamoto, who was formerly a private chef for the Japanese consulate.
Kaiseki is a multi-course Japanese dinner consisting of a collection of tasting dishes, much similar to the French haute cuisine style. We offer 4 different types of kaiseki dinners every night, including a vegan option. Join us with chef Takashi Yamamoto as he serves meticulously crafted dishes rich with the art and history of kaiseki as it evolves throughout the seasons.
About the chef:
Chef Yamamoto received his culinary training along with a prominent tenure at Kurumaya in Shinjuku, Tokyo. He has then served as the head private chef of the Japanese Consulate in New York city, where he has created dinners for various diplomats, including the Royal Family of Japan.
Aside from our main dining room, Suzuki also features a 10 seat counter named Satsuki where chef Suzuki continues his tradition of sushi making in an omakase style with a purist approach.
Three Pillars is a separate bar & lounge with an emphasis on whisky.
The Rose Room is our multi-function private room for dinners, cocktail parties, & conference meetings.
