What a cool place. Modern look and feel with heated vibrating toilet seats... Let your imagination roam where it will, but I only know this because my 9 year old daughter was blown away by this. The signature shrimp appetizer and signature soy ginger cod were truly amazing. Unique enough and well prepared. The special fusion cocktails were okay and... More

For a party of five we had gone to other restaurants and spent the same amount as we did at Morimoto and not had near as good a meal. This was as near perfect a meal as I have ever had. Our server, Winnie, made some suggestions as we wanted to share some maki (the soft shell crab and eel... More

When you walk into Morimoto, you are greeted by a happy staff, and the ambience is clean and subtle. The food is perfect, with several familiar Sushi and sashimi choices, but a few items you would not expect! The scallops carpaccio were so fresh and delicious, as was the duck! But save room for the banana crime puffs, with butterscotch... More

We walked in at 10 pm with a reservation we made a few hours ahead of time, not knowing what to expect except for the great reviews on Yelp and Morimoto's name recognition. We ordered the prix fixe

I eat a fair amount of sushi all over the world. Bottom line: This was top 10 in the world. We ate all ala carte and had a wide variety of appetizers, rolls, and nigiri. The chu-toro was the best I've ever had. By a long shot! Better than most toro I've had. Even the regular Maguro was excellent. Service... More

Go for the Chef's Tasting menu. At $135 it may seem steep in the beginning but after the first course (of like, 9) you realise that its a bargain! You get items not available on the menu, must haves was the chawanmushi (with truffle foam), and the green tea tiramisu. Sushi was also fresh, and immaculately presented. I'm surprised this... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
