My husband and I spent a weekend in NYC over Thanksgiving. When we were dating several years ago, we enjoyed a fabulous meal at Morimoto. Now we have a 4-month old. Hubby called ahead of time to notify and make arrangements for baby and stroller. We arrived a few minutes ahead of our reservation and the hostess double checked with... More

We were all disappointed, for the hour and a half trek into the city we could have dtsyed local and had way better. Service: we arrived 15 minutes early for a Monday night reservation and... More

Great sushi, super fresh. The toro tartare is as good as everyone says. My 9 yr old loved the sushi and he doesn't usually eat raw sushi. The cod was delish as well as the other appetizers. Love the waygu nigiri as well. Be sure to get the flaming chocolate tart. It has a great presentation.

Every time I go to Morimoto is a great experience. The service is always nice and not pretentious. Everything food and drink wise is delicious. Some of my favorites are the pie for dessert and the Hydrangea for drink.

My husband and I had a great experience at Morimoto. He loved his Morimoto sashimi, and sea bass, and my rock shrimp tempura was utterly unique and delicious. All around us, people were being served with fresh seafood in a variety of amazing presentations. I wasn't feeling very well and decided at the last minute that I didn't want my... More

Dishes are well decorated and asking for a picture. The main dishes were well sized portions and very good too, a but oily though. I highy recommned to leave some space for... More

Morimoto, New York seemed to have played a joke on us. This popular and well known celebrity chef presented nothing more then a glorified night club scene serving average Japanese food. The infamous Executive chef Masaharu Morimoto—star of the Food Network’s Iron Chef and former executive chef at Nobu was my boyfriend childhood hero. He adores his innovative ways of... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
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.
