Having been a past resident of New York City, I had to disclose that there is a tremendous amount of mediocre Japanese food in the City. Kyo Ya is a stand-out in Japanese excellence. The food is like 'grand ma' used to make. It's traditional Japanese homemade cooking, with seasonal menus and dishes uncommon to the typical NYC Japanese restaurant menu.
I've dined here many times, and prefer to order off the Hot and Cold Entrees menu rather than the full plates, if only to be exposed to all the more dishes over the course of my meal.
The food is not only always unique (from 4+ different kinds of freshly flown in uni to fugu), the service is consistently exemplary.
This is not only a find, but a secret. Expect to spend greenbacks here; well worth it!
