Intimate experiences are tough to come by in NYC. Certain speakeasies have nailed this[1], while others feel like meat markets. Bohemian addresses this by being referral-only. Yes, you need to know someone to snag a reservation[2]. I'm sure this approach may have hurt initially, but they've since hit critical mass: I stopped by to say hello one polar vortexy weeknight, and every table was filled. Even full, there's room to canoodle and enjoy your shrimp toast, or eavesdrop on your neighbors. Drinks-wise, I've had quite the experience with both their in-house drinks and classics. When it comes to food, skip their tasting menu and dive into whatever sounds good to you. Everything's stellar. From the foie gras soba to the short rib sashimi, dishes are rich, flavorful, and freshly-prepared. [1] Attaboy, I'm looking at you. And I still love you. [2] Unfortunately I can only refer folks I've met in real life. If I refer someone who's nuts, it'll make me look bad. Not that I think you're nuts. Maybe.

After several hurdles, I managed to make a reservation here. It's a small restaurant, and they don't rush their patrons so to turn seats. before you call them pretentious for having a speakeasy and a secret phone number, understand that what makes this place good is the fact that it's small, and the quality of the food/attentiveness of the staff depends on things being small and manageable. Makes for a great date spot. Everything is good.

An ultra exclusive restaurant that is behind a butcher shop at night. The steak menu varies but the regular menu stays the same. The wagyu steak is amazing, perfectly cooked and really high quality meat. They also have interesting cocktails and other tasty dishes like fois gras soba. It might be hard to get a reservation on Friday and Saturday night but the other nights are usually free.

Nice modern + fusion Japanese place. We sat at the booth so it wasn't a great experience. Very nice and polite staff.

If you can get a res-- even late-- take it. This place is amazing. They don't have many seats and don't crowd the space or rush you, so if you want a relaxing, delicious experience this is the place for you. It's a mix of small Japanese bites with tasty cocktails enjoyed while sitting at the bar or at a couch with a coffee table in front of you. It's such a change from most places in NYC and you get a relaxed dining experience.

If you can get an invite / reservation here, this is a speakeasy like no other. Hidden behind a high-end Japanese butcher shop on Great Jones St., one of the very few establishments serving real WAGYU-A5 beef. Their menu is a fusion of Japanese / American fare with many items at reasonable prices. They have a tasting menu for those who cannot decide or are unsure what to order from the menu; but for those with the most curious palette, the a la carte items will keep you satisfied. Make sure you ask for their special dishes as they are not on the menu either. We had ordered a number of dishes, definitely not disappointed. Their Mac and Cheese, I highly recommend as their mix of cheeses spread on top of a buttered-tomato bread... simply amazing. The burger, one of the choicest cuts of beef marinated in a Japanese sauce. We even ordered a two items from their dessert menu, no regrets although a bit too much food for us. Even if you are not hungry, this lounge / restaurant has a drink menu that will keep your entire party entertained through the evening.

Worth a 15 minute subway ride. I don't know if it's just me, but having to search far and wide for a number to this place, as well as a referral name in order to book a reservation, didn't add to the mystique, all it did was really raise expectations. Those expectations were not met when I dined there. Don't get me wrong, this was a fine place, I just didn't see what all the fuss was about. The food was good, price was a bit much for the quality, service was great, and the ambiance was rather eating at your in laws, so if that's your thing then go right ahead.
