Summary: Elegant sushi & sashimi, NYC.

Masa stands as a paragon of Japanese cuisine in the heart of NYC, offering an unparalleled dining experience with its sublime sushi and sashimi. The serene atmosphere of Masa complements its exquisite offerings, ranging from caviar-topped delights to matcha mille-feuille. The establishment's reverence for traditional techniques and ingredients is evident in every dish, making it a must-visit for sushi connoisseurs. The no-photography policy ensures guests remain present in the moment, fully immersed in the culinary journey. The bar/lounge area, though more casual, maintains the same standard of quality with its curated menu featuring dishes such as sake-steamed clams and Kobe beef tataki. Masa's dedication to the art of sushi is showcased at the sushi bar, where guests can observe the chefs' mastery and engage with the intricacies of each creation. The venue's philosophy is rooted in the Japanese principles of shibui and umami, which are reflected in the minimalist decor and the profound flavors of the cuisine. Masa's sister venue, Bar Masa, offers a more accessible yet equally refined experience, with a focus on impeccable sushi and Japanese dishes served in a space adorned with chiseled Oya limestone and polished wood. Whether at Masa or Bar Masa, guests are treated to a culinary performance that transcends the ordinary, leaving a lasting impression of the chef's passion for luxury ingredients and flawless execution.
