Village Voice's Description

"Yuba" is the Japanese word for tofu skin, and you'll find the namesake ingredient in several dishes at this new restaurant from George Ruan and Jack Wei, who became enamored with the soy product when they worked at Masa. It is better when grilled as an appetizer, served with sweet miso and kinome, than in the "layered pouch" with mushrooms. But one of the best plates to sample in this intimate, zen-like space is the risotto-style uni rice. Soy-based foods might be veggie-friendlier, but this sea urchin-topped delight will make you happy you're an omnivore (or at least a pescatarian).

Tips from foursquare

  • Metromix on 12/21/10

    The menu focuses on seafood with high-end touches like caviar and truffles.

  • Josephine S. on 07/01/12

    Sit at the bar and ask Jack to serve you whatever he wants. One of the best sushi dinners I have ever had! Will be back again and again!!

  • Foodspotting on 01/02/11

    Try the Snapper carpaccio with micro-greens and white truffle and spot it on Foodspotting!

  • Melissa H. on 11/07/13

    They screwed up my order then wanted to charge $2 more to fix it. It's not even great sushi. I won't be back.

  • Stacey S. on 08/10/13

    Get the green tea crepe for dessert!! It has 20 crepe layers in the cake and it's just the perfect end to a meal.
