In keeping with the traditional style of food preparation known as kaiseki, which is Japan’s version of haute cuisine, Brushstroke’s menu is a collaboration between iconic Manhattan restaurateur chef David Bouley and Japan’s Tsuji Culinary Institute. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant's menu follows a 20-phase seasonal calendar, causing it to change frequently throughout the year, oftentimes more than once a month. The New York City restaurant dishes out three tasting menus: an eight-course vegetarian option costing $85, a six-course meal at $85 or the savory eight-course feast for $135. Seasonal produce, fresh fish and meats are the focus, accompanied by a choice of a rice dish and dessert. As a bonus, a counter in the eatery’s former lounge area serves unique edomae-style sushi, which is often aged or cured, in nightly tasting menus for $160. Belly up to the bar to watch chef Eiji Ichimura prepare his own selection for your multi-course meal.
