Under the guidance of owner and head chef Masayoshi Takayama, Masa undoubtedly holds the status as New York City’s best sushi restaurant since its founding in 2004. It still maintains its culinary prowess through combining high-quality ingredients with impeccable sushi making skills.
Located on the fourth floor of the Time Warner Center alongside other culinary goliaths, Masa exudes a luxurious atmosphere that is further distinguished by its Japanese-inspired interior bedecked with bamboo chairs and tables. Although sushi is generally a light meal, dining at Masa should not be taken lightly at all; the restaurant only accommodates 26 guests every evening. It is a gustatory occasion worth relishing—and not to mention, worth saving your pence for—as the menu is far from recession-friendly. Regardless of its formidable prices, Masa is a necessary indulgence that will have you emerge taste buds atingle.
