In our main dining room, the kaiseki cuisine is designed to be an expression of “Ichi-go Ichi-e,” taking the unique ingredients of the season and preparing them in a way that is just right for the person at that time. Flavors change with the seasons; in the spring Chef Yamada might use the bitter flavors of young plants to clean the body of toxins built up over the winter. Cuisine is built around the ingredients as well: at Brushstroke each serving of sashimi is plated differently, depending on the unique cut of the fish.

Much like the nearby Bouley, Brushstroke offered an exceptional lunch for a pretty good price. The interior is brightly lit through large windows and features light wood extensively. The kitchen is very visible and one can observe chefs preparing dishes a few feet away. Amuse bouche was a pumpkin and butternut squash soup with a chicken liver cracker. I also tried the grilled octopus, grilled salmon, oyster, steamed egg, snapper rice bowl, and crab risotto. The grilled items were cooked well, but perhaps uninteresting compared to the steamed egg with crab broth and oyster with uni, scallop and lemon foam, which were vibrant. The desert, a green tea pudding was soothing end to the meal.

Great experience during a lunch visit. Food was excellent- We asked the chef to prepare something for us because we couldn't decide what to eat. Fantastic outcome! Wine list is excellent, and when the Israeli caviar came out the Somelier went next door to the neighboring restaurant to fetch us some bread to eat with our caviar. Impeccable service!

David Bouley's collaboration with a Japanese Culinary School has paid off in spades for all parties involved. Not long ago I was a guest for the Winter Tasting Menu (plus Sashimi) and walked away simply elated by the ambiance, staff and food production and quality.

THIS IS A MASTERPIECE. Over the last few years, we've been here a half dozen times. Service is flawless. Food presentation is gorgeous. This is a very serious enterprise presented by professionals and done with light hand. Have the 6 course "tasting dinner" and don't choose things with up charges. There is no need to order more. This is a 2 1/2 hour commitment and well worth it. And, as Dale says, it's not expensive compared with flying to Tokyo.

Worth a 20 minute subway ride. I will start by saying the food, service, ambience, and portions here were excellent. I had their tasting menu and I was full three fourths of the way through. My biggest and only complaint was the wait time between each tasting. It was excruciatingly long. It may have just been that one night but they aren't the sort of place you dine at daily so it'll take a while before I find out.

This place made my fiancé sick after eating a super expensive dinner for my birthday... Unbelievable how they called modern Japanese cuisine.
