Urasawa has built well on the former Masa owned restaurant, refining traditions and keeping well established combinations such as Toro and Imperial Beluga, Foie Gras Shabu Shabu etc. The most amazing feature in my opinion is the calm, yet intense atmosphere in which every dish is prepared in front of you. Although expensive, it is worth it if you enjoy... More

We managed to get a booking for 4 on at the bar on a Thursday evening (the bar seats 9 people max) and there's a separate table that can seat 2, so we were pretty lucky. Service was friendly and attentive but not overwhelming, the atmosphere was Zen like. Watching the sushi chef carve into each fish and preparing the... More

After spending more than $6,000 one night, my husband and I were baffled that upon a suggestion by one of our guests, the owner chef waved his hand and with bulged eyes said, "You don't have to come back if you don't like it!" The story was, given the statement that all unused fish would be thrown away everynight, our... More

My husband took me to Urasawa for my birthday dinner this past Friday night. The other reviews pretty much nailed it on the head: Urasawa offers amazing Japanese cuisine, presented in glorious style with amazing service, but it is very expensive (and worth it) and extraordinarily filling. Service was amazing. Presentation and food quality were amazing. We experienced some tastes... More

Masa's student is running a small Sushi restaurant on Via Rodeo. It is truly high level, but the food is very serious... can't leave anything on the plate or reject anything Yuki serves. Not for everyone.

When we finally found this place - 12 seats in a small space tucked in a non-descript "office space" on North Rodeo - we wondered if it would live up to the hype. The chef worked at Masa in NY and the influences are evident: ingredients, flavors, style and price. With the exception of the last of these, these are... More

Yes, the food is Super Fresh, Tasty, Rich, Unusual, Unique => a one-of-a-kind experience that you should try ONCE in yourlife time, but twice? There is just so much rich food - course after course after course... counted 30 - we could have stopped at 20. The first 10+ course are sort of pre-desgined - after that the sushi chef... More
