EN Japanese Brasserie
Experience traditional Japanese dining in a beautiful, authentic Japanese restaurant located in the West Village of Manhattan. We offer the rich traditions of Japanese home cooking with Chef Abe Hiroki's modern approach to Washoku, a relaxed style of dining centered around a procession of small plates. Like we do in Japan, we cook with the seasons, and savor the peak flavor of ingredients. We adhere to the fundamentals of Japanese cooking: respecting the ingredients and their natural flavors, cooking in the moment, and not doing too much. We have created an extensive menu, featuring dishes as fresh tofu (prepared six times a night), Saikyo Miso Black Cod, stone grilled Washugyu steaks, an assortment of sashimi and sushi and a signature EN Kaiseki set menu, a sequence of eight extraordinary presentations. To compliment your dining experience, we have developed an extensive list of small-batch, artisanal sake and shochu to complement your dining experience.
I take all my dates here. The place has a very nice atmosphere, Lots of things to try and always fresh. If you're with the boys go after 10, keep the dates before 9ish as it gets a lil louder. Not your average Brassiere in a good way. Upper East has few great spots too. But that's another review. Bottom line, the food is very fresh and well prepared. The decor intimate and pleasant. A must!
