A word from Shinbashi
When Shinbashi originally opened in 1974 waitresses wearing traditional clothing served the then novel sushi and traditional Japanese dishes. Shinbashi became popular amongst Japanese businessmen visiting New York and the restaurant was reviewed in the New York Times by Ruth Reichi in 1998 calling it "venerable Japanese." The new incarnation is following in the tradition of attracting Japanese guests but does so in a modern setting. The restaurant remains streamlined and cleanly lit so as to showcase the food. Quality of fish and presentation are of the highest standard and it is this attention to detail that is carried into the attentive service. Shinbashi offers an environment for you to appreciate your meal at the pace you choose and the space to enjoy your conversation.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Superb Japanese cuisine, presented beautifully, in a room that is quiet enough to allow easy conversation at lunch."
    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "Took a new colleague herr for a "welcome" lunch since this place is right around the corner; from the minute I entered, until we received our coats, we were hurried through every step. Were there less than 70 minutes and it felt like a sprint to leave. Sushi is average. Our "we'd like to start eith edamame" came out after we received our meals (D'OH!)"

  • "Tofu Steak was good. I wish that the bento box hadn't come with Shrimp since I am a vegeterian."

  • "the food and service were good and prices were reasonable; I'm not sure I'd go again though since it was very noisy and I had trouble having a normal conversation."

  • "Superb sushi; a staff that atends, but doesn't hover. It's an excellent business lunch setting because the quiet atmosphere allows for easy conversation."

  • "The food was good. The restaurant was very quiet. However, I did have to make an extremely early reservation in order to catch a flight. I would like to go back at a later time to see if it fills up. My impression was that it is probably a great place for lunch. At dinner, the energy is low. Again, the food was good. The service was fine. It was just slow around 6 pm. It was good enough to warrant a second trip."

  • "This is a good spot for Japanese in midtown. They have bento box lunch specials. Overall the price is a bit on the high side, but the food is authentic Japanese."
