Masao Matsui, a sexagenarian tempura master, accepted the challenge presented to him by Hisami Mitsumori to open the first tempura restaurant in New York. Tempura is one of the most popular dishes in Japan.
In an intimate space with only 19 seats, 9 of which are at the counter and where the Master prepares the tempuras delicately and traditionally, you will experience an authentic Japanese experience, both in flavor and in the traditional atmosphere, as is customary in Japanese restaurants.
Tempura Matsui has an 'omakase', which we call a tasting menu, made up of true fried tempura with fresh fish and vegetables, always in season and originating from Japan and from Japanese farmers who cultivate vegetables in the traditional form.
This is the only menu that the restaurant presents and costs $200 per person, not including drinks. In terms of drinks, it offers 12 sakes and Japanese wine from Yamanashi Prefecture in the Koshu region.
At least once in your life, set aside two hours of your day for a dining experience that will simply blow your mind.
