Inhabiting a below-ground space inside Chelsea's Dream Downtown hotel, this reincarnated Japanese restaurant/lounge boasts an expansive setting with a sushi bar and expect eye-pleasing contemporary plates and cocktails. The chef is Top Chef alum Francis Tariga-Weshnak, who previously worked at Catch. The menu features appetizers like a king crab pineapple roll, and tuna tartare served in miniature ice cream cones. But the star of the show is surely the authentic Japanese wagyu beef. Or maybe its the room itself, which has a multi colored lighting system.
