Foursquare Tips

  • Get the freshly-made house tofu! It's fantastic
  • Try the freshly made scooped tofu; a delicate, silken dish with a nutty flavor. Its one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011.
  • Oh my Cod! I would immediately convert to whatever religion that black cod believes in.
  • Get the Uni Don
  • Great destination for lunch. Had the Cod lunch set and the flavors were interesting. Wash it down with a Matcha Green Tea.
  • From the wild discovery of ginko beans to the cod that melts in your mouth, last but not least, the exquisite chesnut panna cota...an awakening of all senses. I shall come back in 2 months.
  • Try having a variety: sushi roll to start. The garlic chicken and beef as a main, and the cake with green tea ice cream for dessert. Delicious!
  • Homemade tofu nommmmm
  • the tasting menu and the fried chicken are two of the most amazing things you'll order. you can't go wrong. see if you can snag one of the rooms upstairs (the couch room is so relaxing)
  • For the cherry blossom festival @ ENJB, try the sashimi cold-smoked over cherry wood, tile fish marinated in cherry blossom dashi, & washugyu ribeye hotpot - all paired with sake on request.
  • Stop by for the fish heads, eel bones & beer dinner, a monthly fete with dishes like whole roasted tuna collar, salmon skin salad & deep fried eel bones-all for $45 with Sapporo from the keg.
  • Go to sake tasting ('til 7:30 everyday): just pick your own 3 flights to sample. Also sign up for their 50 Sake Tasting event. Try the Toyo Bijin junmai dai ginjo if available.
  • Get the black truffle chawanmushi (egg custard), anything with uni, the tofu salad, and the salmon rice pot. Just trust. Reserve tatami rooms in the back for a big group.
  • Try the Uni tasting - From Peru, Santa Barbara, Maine and Japan. Very distinctive and delicious. (via @Foodspotting)
  • Try the Chicken Karaage - Karaage is great when done well. This one was great. (via @Foodspotting)
  • Resto is extremely well lit at lunch with its large windows on the corner of hudson and leroy. The lunch sets offer great value vs. the dinner menu. The sashimi set was expertly done and satisfying.
  • Get chefs choice and make sure to try the handmade tofu. I dont even mess with tofu normally but this will vaporize your brain.
  • Some uni meals leave a lasting impression on a foodie's soul. The uni don is undoubtedly one of those rare meals. Read more about my quest for the best uni at www.urchinsurchin.com.
  • Uni excels here
  • It takes a lot of work to eat the yellowtail collar, but it's the best large dish on the menu. Don't be lazy!
