Masa, a Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant in New York, doesn’t have private dining rooms — the whole sushi restaurant encompasses only 26 seats, so the main dining room feels like a private room in the first place. The room has four tables that each seat four and 10 seats at the sushi bar, which we think offers the best seats in the house. The sushi bar is well lit and smooth, with a hinoki wood top and fantastic views of the sushi chefs at work. Masa requires reservations, and the chances of you walking in and snagging a seat are basically slim-to-none. Dinner at this New York restaurant is pre-set with 26 courses of appetizers, sushi, rice and tea and comes at a hefty price tag; depending on the season, dinner costs $450 to $600 per person before tax, tip and beverages.
The adjacent Bar Masa, also located on the fourth floor of the Time Warner Center, allows walk-ins and offers a less expensive dinner, lunch and à la carte menu.
