Natsumi Breaks New Ground with Innovative Modern Japanese Cuisine. Barbara Matsumura founder of Haru Restaurants, has teamed up again with Chef Haru Konagaya to create this strikingly original destination. Two separate experiences in two adjacent sites, an elegant restaurant and a trendy Tokyo-chic bar/lounge. Natsumi specializes in modern Japanese cuisine with a touch of Italian ingredients; offering an array of creative dishes such as, sashimi arugula salad, new style yellowtail carpaccio, and lobster green tea ravioli. The innovative menu relies on unique preparations with dynamic flavors. The wine list is international, with white, red, sparkling wines, and champagne by the glass and bottle. The restaurant is divided into distinct dining areas, a cozy space with intimate booths, a sushi bar where diners can watch the chefs compose, and in the front, the windows open to the street. The whole room is infused with a warm golden glow and earth tones. We only seat compete parties.

    A great pre-theatre choice! Food, service and cocktails are all great! There is, however, only a single toilet shared with the bar, which are both across a public hall. If you are going,as we were, to one of those shows without an intermission, be sure to allow some extra time!

    Had dinner pre-theater last week. Edamame dumplings, fish tacos and two kinds of sushi. Everything was delicious and the fish tacos were so good that we ordered a second helping! We will definitely return!!

    Pre-theater menu is a good deal, especially if you're running to a show, but you have to ask for it specifically. Food itself was tasty, especially the spicy seafood miso, the wolf hall roll, and the tempura cheesecake. Restaurant is very cramped and service was a little tough. They also don't have half the wines on their list.

    First time to Natsumi. It was very convenient to Broadway, where we were seeing a show. Our reservations were early (5:30 PM), and it was quiet. The service was outstanding, and the menu offered a Pre-Theater Prix Fixe at $39. The offerings were generous, beautifully plated and just enough for an early dinner. Chef's selection was one of the offerings, which my partner selected, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Specialty drinks are also offered - not discounted - but still reasonable for NYC.

    Natsumi has nice ambience and the food was quite good. It was traditional sushi and menu. The service was very good. We were meeting a friend whom we had not seen in over 10 years and the server was cognizant of this and let us take our time. I would go back to this restaurant. One of our party is vegetarian and the menu could accommodate this nicely. We had the soft shelled crab roll, a vegetarian roll, tuna sushi, and others, etc. The bathroom was downstairs and not so nice is the only thing i could say. The bathroom upstairs we waited and waited for over 20 minutes before giving up.

    Not bad, not super expensive, but not great. Appetizers were tasty, dumplings and shrimp, fired calamari was not very good. Rolls were large, fish was ok. No complaints other than the calamari, but nothing memorable that would bring me back. OK place, but there are better.

    From the atmosphere, to the service, to the food, Natsumi was incredible. It’s a smaller, quaint restaurant which is a perfect for a pre-theatre dinner. Highly recommended and will be returning.

    The options with the a la carte menu and the prix fixe menu was a nice choice. The prix fix menu had a nice variety to choose from for appetizers and entrees as well as dessert. The options for beverages were plentiful. The wait person, Cory was very attentive and friendly. The food was presented beautifully and the fish very fresh and tasty. We have been coming here for quite a while and have always enjoyed our dinners here for pre-theater.
