Sit by the Sushi bar and either go with the menu (the rolls are amazing) or go with the chef recommendations (starter menu at about $65 per person)

Enjoyed a nice meal here with work friends. Small restaurant and nice service. Very good sushi / high quality seafood. But prices to match!! I ordered the lobster risotto and was disappointed, was not the taste or consistency expecting. Specialists in sea urchin, which is a little exotic for me. Very good desserts too, though out of my first choice.... More

We came here to take advantage of the $35 sushi omakase plate. The presentation is immaculate and the food is some of the best sushi I have had outside of Japan. The omakase changes depending on the day, but if you are lucky enough to get the citrus scallops then it's a good day! You can order individual sushi, but... More

Went for dinner with the family and it was an amazing meal. Some of the best sushi and sashimi we've had, with fresh wasabi (which is pretty hard to get!). Husband and I had the tasting menu, whilst kids chose various items and shared. Super attentive service, and overall a beautiful dinner!!

Lovely restaurant with good food and service and a nice crowd. We had a 7:30pm reservation and had been told that there would be a second seating at 9:30pm and that we'd have to be done by then. It wasn't a problem as service seemed timed to make a 2 hour meal for 4 happen. We didn't order "lavishly" and... More

I went there solo and enjoyed one of the best sushi dinners I have ever had, including in Tokyo. I tried one of the many sakes they have on the menu and then another, each was delicious and a great accompaniment to my dinner. The star of the show was the live uni, served in the shell and amazingly sweet,... More

Fresh and fantastic sashimi! Tuna landed that morning in Boston was our dinner the same day! Excellent service and recommendations - went with a sashimi appetizer followed by 10 different types of sashimi (beautifully presented) and a couple of tuna maki - it all tasted delicious. Try the tiramisu for desert instead of taking a coffee!

We just ate at 15 East and loved every minute of it. Not only was the food great but the service was superb. We can't wait to go back.

Staying in Flatiron District

Neighbourhood Profile
Flatiron District
Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets- much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighbourhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being the home of a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
