After a series of preview dinners for the rich and somewhat famous, shiny Japanese restaurant Ryu opened in the Meatpacking District last week. This is reality TV star Scott Disick's first restaurant project, and here he's teamed up with Chris Reda of Griffin and Fatty Crew VP of operations Jesse Camac. The menu features shareable small and large plates arranged under headings like "snacks," "skewered," "tempura," "mains," and "raws."
Some of the big dishes include a wagyu rib eye steak, seared tuna with potato and spring onions, and scallops with ginger and rhubarb. To drink, there are Asian-influenced cocktails and punch bowls, plus bottle service (it's the MePa, don't forget). Also: the space features large photos of Japanese body art. Take a look around, and do send any early reports to the tipline.
