Village Voice's Description

Iron chef and erstwhile Nobu chef Masaharu Morimoto brings his Philadelphia restaurant to the ass end of Chelsea Market, with food that adds Chinese and European twists to creative Japanese cuisine. The space resembles a giant white tent, and employees scampering on several levels make it more circus-like. The sushi is irreproachable, offering oddball items like live octopus (uncooked, but not flopping), multiple mackerels, and six kinds of roe. The best stuff is found among the small dishes, including a splendid collection of appetizers called zen sai, while the voluminous main courses;a shiso-butter-poached half-lobster and kobe rib braised in red miso, for example;can get tiring.

    Try the tuna-sushi pizza and the horse mackerel sushi, recommends chef Scott Conant in his New York Diet.

    Now you can pick up a boxed-lunch to take to the High Line from the Iron Chef's sprawling spot. The multi-course meal includes salad, miso soup, a California roll, sushi, and bottled water.

    A big yum on this one. Hang out at the sushi bar like a pro. This Iron Chef namesake restaurant didn’t miss a step on the décor.

  • This is the temple of Masaharu Morimoto -- don't sit at a table like a chump. Reserve at the sushi bar, order the omakase tasting menu, and let the Iron Chef be your guide. [BlackBook]
