Take a Look Around Akashi, an Underground Omakase Counter in the West Village

The chef is serving a $200 set menu with sushi and seasonal delicacies

Last week chef Yoichi Akashi opened his new Japanese restaurant on the corner of Christopher and Gay streets. Akashi is a native of Japan with 25-plus years of experience in restaurants, including stints at Sushi Yasuda and Sushi Nakazawa. At Akashi, the chef will exclusively serve kappo-style omakase (a multi-course menu determined by seasonal offerings) for $200 per person, plus tax and gratuity. While the menu will change frequently, some sample dishes include flounder sashimi, beef with seaweed salt & cucumber, mackerel with sweet miso mustard, and pike with matsutake mushrooms. The beverage list from general manager/beverage director Melissa Avis includes everything from Slovakian wines to Japanese beers and teas. The 10-seat, 500 square-foot restaurant sits on the lower level of 14 Christopher Street, underneath Dominique Bistro. Take a look at the space below, and let us know what you think if you stop by.
