Wolfgang Ban Gets his Kaiseki Dinners at Sugiyama

New, 4 comments

New York City is home to a lot of restaurants, more than any rational human being can ever hope to visit. Among that number are hidden gems the majority of New Yorkers just aren't unearthing. To help guide us to these potential discoveries, we've enlisted some of our city's many food luminaries to share with us their under the radar recommendations for Dining Confidential.

Today Edi & The Wolf and Seasonal's chef/owner Wolfgang Ban gives a shoutout to Japanese fave Sugiyama:

"Sugiyama is my favorite Japanese restaurant. Mr. Sugiyama, the chef and owner has been cooking in his kitchen for over 30 years, preparing the most challenging Japanese menus, a kaiseki. Mr. Sugiyama gets in at 8 AM every morning (and they don’t open for lunch) because it’s a solo operation covering about 70 tables per night. Most menus are prix-fixe with eight courses, an impressive feat for just one man to pull off. And it’s not just sushi and sashimi, the menu is packed with many high quality dishes. He even prepares his own seasonally driven soy sauce."
