Tonight the first New York outpost of Zuma, the clubby, London-based Japanese restaurant empire, opens in Midtown. It's as big and splashy as promised, with two stories outfitted in massive pieces of wood and granite. There's a sushi counter, a robata grill and a glass-enclosed wine cellar on the first floor, while upstairs a bar and a couple of private dining rooms offer a view of the scene below.

The menu here is as to be expected, and not unlike its other locations in Miami, Hong Kong, Abu Dhabi and elsewhere. A range of meat and vegetable skewers, tempura, several steaks, and entrees like a Nobu-style miso cod. There is also sushi, overseen by Katzutoshi Endo, who trained under a protege of Japan's famed sushi chef Jiro Ono. His offerings span from simple sashimi to more opulent maki rolls. There are a few omakase options as well, including a $158 one for the high-rollers, of which there are sure to be plenty around here. Take a look at the full menu here:
