Spent some time surfing for information on good Japanese restaurants in New York. Some were closed and some were full. Settled on one named in the Zagat guide and run by a well know chef who also operates the Bouley, a short walk from this place. The write up and reviews were all very good so we made a dinner...

Had the 3 course lunch for $45. Beautiful and thoughtful. Plenty to eat. The rice course of beef cheek was reminiscent of satisfying comfort food. Excellent service!

A small group of my friends went for a delightful Saturday lunch. The prix fixe was very reasonable for the creative delicious cuisine. We thoroughly enjoyed all of the dishes and had a chance to sample each one. There is a mix of cooked and raw dishes depending how you order. If you love and appreciate Japanese food, then definitely... More

Although it has been a year since we last visited, it certainly lives up to it's name of an artist creating something special with each dish. Nice warm decor and interesting mix of textures & flavors, making it a delight kaiseki offering.

Michelin Chef Eiji Ichimura has departed and new Chef Isao Yamada is serving a Sushi (Modern) Kaiseki Menu. The fish and seafood was excellent featuring items sourced from Japan - Hokkaido (Eel, Scallops, Squid) or locally - Long Island (Sea Bass, Squid). Attractively presented in ceramics or Sake boxes. It helps to know a little Japanese as a few dish... More

Beautiful glowing room. Lots of wood. Prize fixe menu very good. Time consuming and complex, FYI. Delicious but you have to be in right frame of mind.

Every course was good or very good but it was wasn't at the level of outstanding. At these prices, we just expected to be wowed and we weren't. Service was also very good, but just seemed to lack a bit of polish.

This is Japanese turned on an axis. In a good way. We tried the kaiseki and every dish was a feast of flavors. Definitely try the sushi/wine pairing to elevate the dinner into the beyond!

We were sorely disappointed by our dinner here. Spending 500 between the two of us, the food was just ..okay. The service not at all close to reflecting the price... Japanese flavors obviously dominated but they were torn apart by discordant flavors and techniques. Pieces of most dishes felt disparate and flavors did not meld. Clearly high end food like... More

A collaborative effort of Chef David Bouley and Japan’s Tsuji Culinary Institute, Brushstroke presents an inspired modern adaptation of Kyoto's kaiseki cuisine: seasonally focused tasting menus that change throughout the year. Kaiseki menus in the main dining room showcase a wide range of Japanese cuisine, from delicate use of vegetables to sashimi, rice and wagyu. Options include the chef’s artisanal kaiseki menu ($135), the shorter tasting menu ($85) and the fully vegetarian tasting menu ($85). Please note that we do not offer a la carte. Sushi is offered exclusively in a separate area, where Chef Eiji Ichimura presents omakase ($160+) sushi dining. Reservations for sushi are not available online.
