Says spokesperson Kimi Watanabe, “Bohemian New York is an invitation/referral only SECRET HIDE-OUT for our beloved NAKAMA (Japanese for 'a group of people who are feeling the same vibe'). Our phone number is kept confidential among our repeat customers and their friends and family. In order to gain access to a reservation, those interested must be referred by someone who has been to Bohemian. Or, send us a brief self-introduction through our web site (in time they may receive an invitation)." — Michelle Kiefer, 1/12/2012, America's 10 Most Secret Restaurants.

Foursquare Tips

  • So secret and exclusive you shouldn't even be reading this.
  • Its Web site advises, Please be referred by someone who has already visited us, and the lore is that its phone number is not listed. In reality, the number surfaces with determined Googling.

  • See that glowing door on the left? That's the entrance. All other roads lead to butchered meat.
