This cavernous venue tucked underneath the Merritime hotel leaves your mouth agape at the architecture. It usually takes a few minutes to be seated, even if you have a reservation, but you can cozy up to the bar for one of their traditional martinis (a favorite is the pear one). If you don't have reservations they can usually seat you at the sushi bar, where a full menu is served. The staff is very knowledgable, the sashimi is extremely fresh (especially the tune and hamachi), and the shrimp tempura melts in your mouth. Since it's in the heart of the Meat Packing district, it's an easy walk to any number of hot clubs: a great place to start the night off!
