There’s no shortage of amazing restaurants in New York City, but that’s precisely what can make deciding on a dinner plan overwhelming, so allow us to introduce KYU. The Miami import recently appeared in season two of Sex and the City spin-off And Just Like That…, when Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) and her gal pal Seema Patel (Sarita Choudhury) paid a visit to the NoHo spot to sip martinis and talk break-ups, new beaus and Bethenny Frankel.
While we may not have gotten a peek at the food on AJLT, we did get to enjoy the stunning aesthetic (it’s in the second episode in case you’re curious), and we’re pleased to report that KYU’s menu is 100% Wonderland-approved.
The Asian-inspired, wood-fired restaurant serves up delicious dishes for dinner every night, from halibut with brown butter miso and pickled myoga slaw, to filet mignon with toasted garlic soy and house kimchi, and plenty of veggie-friendly options like udon noodles with black garlic miso and wood ear mushrooms. Don’t skip over the lighter bites, either; KYU has some of the best tuna crispy rice in the city, not to mention delicious shrimp gyoza and spicy softshell chili crab. Oh, and you’ve probably heard of the viral Erewhon sushi sandwich, but allow KYU to elevate your palate one step further with their caviar sandwich made with Japanese milk bread and negi butter.
KYU has recently extended its delectable offerings to include a special Din-Din at KYU menu on Sunday and Monday nights, where diners can choose any two dishes from the dinner menu and an order of Thai fried rice for the table for just $60 per person – an absolute steal, especially in New York. Bottles of wine are also 50% off on both nights.
