Brushstroke opens for Lunch and Dinner, and is offering special menus on mothers day.
Sunday, May 13, 2018
In our heads, Brushstroke was going to be a Golden Girls version of Nobu – which is becoming pretty golden itself. Luckily, we were way off base. The crowd at Brushstroke might be older, but this place is anything but old.
Amazing food. Great service
Food was good but not $135 prix fixe menu good. Tasty but a bit bland.
Horrible experience! Terrible service and average food at best. No where near the level of other sushi driven restaurants like Nobu, Sasabune and Zuma. I will never recommend Brushstroke to anyone and if asked, share specifics of my awful dinner.
overpriced unfortunately !
(count $300/person for the menu with Waygu beef & Sake)
one of the best Kaiseki on the US side of the ocean.
Brushstroke is Amazing! We had an incredible meal and will never forget the experience.
I don't leave reviews but I have to make an exception in this instance as this place blew my mind away. Everything from the service, food, even the bathroom was exceptional.
Curlinary art at its finest. Seasonally fresh ingredients awaits. Always flavorful, always exquisite. Thank you for beautiful ensemble of good eats, fun, and new yet sophisticated presentation, service, aesthetic throughout. Thank you for orchestrating such a professional finest courinarly art. Always something new and exciting, and articulation in five senses. Pleasure is the word that is the reason to go back to ... Thank you...
Greta food great service. Will be back!
Authentic Japanese cuisine served by people who take their jobs seriously!
disappointing. Boulet across the street (sister restaurant) way better.
We had the chef tasting menu. Only one course was good
The food material has good quality，but the food choice for each course is not really good，it cannot let me feel a progressive relationship between each course. For example，after some seafood dishes，I always have astringent taste.（add some small courses to fresh the mouth cavity is very important！The gohan part is the worst part for my dinner，the taste is not as good as some cheap Japanese restaurants' （I didn't choose the supplement one，but it doesn't mean the normal one need to be perfunctory. ）In my opinion，the kaiseki menu is not worth its price. The ambience and service is good，I feel very comfortable.
I have yet to dine here for dinner, but have very much enjoyed 2 ichiju sansai lunches. The lunch prices are a great deal for such good food, service, and ambiance.
The omakase was a delicious experience. It was a 3 hour food journey, and there was so much food that we had leftovers for the next day. The fish was delicate and fresh, food was flavorful and creative, and the presentation was beautiful. We had the wine/sake pairing with our meal, and loved it. The only negative comment was that the sommelier told us he would email a list of the wines that we had, but he never did. My husband even sent an email asking for it, but they never responded.
Excellent dining experience overall. Great attention to detail in the food and for the most part in service but still a relaxed atmosphere. The tasting menu is an excellent value given the quality and variety of ingredients presented. The chef's respect for the food shone through in how the food was prepared in a simple way but with exceptional execution to highlight the ingredients natural flavors. The only negative was the persistently cold draft in the corner of the room where we were seated. We pointed this out to our waiter on 3 occasions but he gave no explanation for why the problem couldn't be addressed and didn't seem at all concerned by our discomfort.
I ordered a bottle of sake priced at $90. They charged me $220. Very disappointed
Really a special experience. Beautiful presentation, service and delicious food. The wine and sake were also wonderful and the waitstaff so accommodating and helpful.
I was incredibly disappointed. It feels like the chefs menu here was something that might've been good five years ago, but the preparation has gotten lazy , just underwhelmed. After dinner for two costing $660, I was hungry afterwards and had to eat two pieces of pizza before I went to bed. The space is beautiful, and the people are lovely and want to try hard… But you just feel ripped off by the experience and sadly, not impressed, by the presentation and taste of the food. So what else is there?
Wow! What a fabulous meal. From the first cause to dessert, I was blown away. The duck w/bamboo shoot blew my mind. I will be back!
One of the best Japanese restaurant in NYC.
Creative Kaiseki. I love Japanese eel rice.
Lobster noodles, Wagyu, Duck is amazing delicious. Sashimi plate is fresh and beautiful.
A la carte is not high price.
Wagyu Passion fruit miso is wonderful!
I had lunch. It was wonderful and beautiful food.
Good ingredients and artistic dishes
HAPPENED TO VISIT FOR THE FIRST TIME ON VALENTINES DAY, SO ITS DIFFICULT TO GET AN ACCURATE FEEL ON WHAT THE NORMAL DINING EXPERIENCE MIGHT BE ON ANY OTHER NIGHT.
FOOD AND DRINKS WERE PHENOMENAL. WILL TRY AND RETURN ON A LESS HECTIC EVENING.
Sat in a dingy basement and had terrible service. Food was OK at best. Terrible value for for the cost. It's a shame since you would expect a lot more from a David Bouley restaurant.
We went for Valentine's Day. They had overbooked and created a new small room on the lower floor for couples. It was a windowless room which was obviously created because of overbooking and music was playing from an iphone, not even speakers. I was very shocked that we were going to pay $175 per person for set tasting menu and we were seated next to the coat room in this makeshift room.
We told the hostess this was unacceptable, and promptly were seated upstairs in the main dining room. The food was great, the rest of the evening was good, but the start of the evening, I would ve never expected from a Bouley restaurant, very disappointing.
Amazing food, presentation and service, highest praise.
Kaiseki tasting menu with sake is very creative!!
I can't wait to come back for dinner!
Excellent selection for sashimi assortment, also a great choices for shiizakana and gohan with a variety of fresh and seasonal ingredients. My favorite was the new Salmon and ikura bento box. Great quality food at a reasonable price. Can't wait to go back!
overpriced and marginal food would never come back
one of the worst dining experiences of my life. extraordinarily pretentious sommelier, forgettable wines, outrageously overpriced, cuts of sashimi were extraordinarily thick and quality was poor. chawanmushi was anything but delicate, as the only evident flavor was truffle. to call this restaurant 'Japanese' is an insult to Japanese cuisine.
A gem in the neighborhood, a traditional Japanese dishes with flairs. I would recommend this place solely for the amazing service and friendly staffs. The tasting menu, is impeccable.
Fabulous experience overall . My dining companion was impressed by the vegetarian omakase
My friend and I ordered the kaiseki menu (with no surcharges, although many were "available") and one of the least expensive bottles of sake on the list. With an average tip (to match the very average service), our bill was $500. There was no value in this multi-course but boring meal. The food was freshly prepared but timidly seasoned and of little interest from the standpoint of flavor or texture. It was somewhat pretty on the plate. There were no exciting ingredients or even "luxury" ingredients. The sashimi course was particularly dreary. What a shame.
Food very low quality, far over priced. Extrem;y disappointing
This is traditional kaiseki and its well done but diners should understand what they are going for and not confuse it with a sushi bar. I and my adult children enjoyed the evening very much.
We went for my son's birthday. 6 of us had the tasting menu. Food was awful - borderline inedible and crazy expensive. One person clearly at the beginning of the meal said they had a shell fish allergy and then were brought shell fish.
