Its location: 146 EsseX Street between Stanton & Rivington St. (Lower East Side)
From outside it looks like a kitschy crapy little store; once in the store a hostess leads you to a door and on the other side is the restaurant. (sorry to ruin the surprise ;-) The food is delicious, the music pretty loud but you can still hear yourself talk, and the service is great too. The food is not cheap (but it is worth it).
The items on the Menu you cannot miss (It's tapas style so be ready to share):
-Kobe Beef Carpaccio
-Sashimi of Tuna, Tonnato Style
-Oven Braised Chicken Meatballs
-Seared Nori Spiced Tuna
-Crispy Sweet & Sour Pork Belly
-Molten Chocolate Bread Pudding
One last detail.... Girls do not forget to go wash your hands before dinner...... (you receive champagne in the bathrooms) Pretty Cool, right?!
