Eat Like A Samurai Warrior with French Flair

  • Food

Named after acclaimed Japanese actor Toshiro Mifune, who achieved worldwide fame playing disciplined samurai masters, MIFUNE New York presents food through a cast of Michelin starred chefs. Situated at the bottom of a Midtown East high-rise, the restaurant has a traditional Japanese feel achieved through clean wooden accents and uncomplicated décor, but it is unlike anything you’ve ever tasted. Using French technique, the young chefs who helm this eatery approach Japanese cuisine creatively. What results is like Mifune himself—innovative, artistic, and memorable. No matter what you try—the smoked lamb chops with black garlic sauce or braised yellowtail with daikon radish and kimizu sauce—it tastes as good as it looks.

Leave behind specialties from the land and sea and go up to the roof for The Perfect Pint. With 30 beers on tap, this traditional Irish bar provides a perfect ambiance for kicking back and letting the night sprawl out before you. There are a few different staging areas, so you can decide if you want to be outside, watching sports, or checking out the lounge scene. Either way, you’ll be in good hands and close to most major subway lines when you’re ready to call it a night.
