Sen Sakana is Peruvian-Japanese, a fusion style that’s actually very popular in Peru. This place got written up when it opened as being a “$7 milion restaurant,” and we frankly don’t know what that means. Presumably it means they spent $7 million on the renovations, but if that’s the case, it seems unfortunate that they lined the whole place with sad office carpet. As for the food, a big portion of the menu is dedicated to sushi with Peruvian toppings (there’s a “ceviche” roll, for example) as well as skewers, ceviches and tiraditos, and a big mix of other stuff. The food is fine, and it might be okay for a business lunch, but you most certainly don’t need to spend your money here. Definitely not $7 million worth.

We had hoped that instead of conforming to Midtown, Bill’s Bar and Burger would make Midtown conform to it. It did not.
Farida is a casual Central Asian restaurant in Midtown with excellent food and a fun atmosphere.
We typically love ourselves some Michael White. Though his new hotel restaurant Ai Fiori is a sprawling space with more room than they know what to do with. Set inside The Setai, this is a bit of a cookie cutter hotel restaurant - one that isn’t bad, but just isn’t quite our style.

Toriko is a yakitori spot in the West Village that serves omakase menus focused on excellent grilled chicken skewers.
A great East Village date night spot, especially when you get the adjacent cocktail lounge, Angel's Share, involved.
There are some incredible things to eat at Neta, but there are also some duds on the menu. It’s probably a much better experience if you have endless money to spend. Then again, so is everything.
