"Jack of All trades" Japanese around midtown/Chelsea?


#1

Any restaurant recommendations for a nice Japanese restaurant with a wide menu? Came across Ootoya in Times Square, seemed like it might work. Any opinions or other recommendations?

Thanks.


#2

Ootoya and HAMA would both work. Just sort of what you mean by jack of all trades.


#3

Thanks!

If you don’t mind going a little more downtown, EN Brasserie in the Village is another more than decent jack-of-all–trades option.


#5

If OP is willing to venture out beyond Midtown/Chelsea, then Kyo Ya (in the East Village) would be my pick over any restaurant in the city.

Thanks @helen_s helen_s for EN Brasserie rec, will note for another day.

@ipsedixit Awwww crap walked past Kyo ya this evening without realizing. Tried walk-in at Kura but they were full, ended up at Somtum der instead.

As in…“master of none.” Would that be “damning with faint praise”? Everytime I see that title this is what comes to mind.
