A while back, Ken and I had a wonderful date at Ichimura, a restaurant within a restaurant in Tribeca. Ichimura at Brushstroke has a side entrance once you walk into Brushstroke, a David Bouley restaurant. Here’s the entrance:


The decor is very interesting – the walls look like they’re wood paneling, but in reality, they’re books stacked in different directions:


In between the books, there are really interesting clay-made scenes of Japanese streets:


Onto the food – we started with a very delicious egg custard with king crab and black truffle:


Then moved onto root vegetables and cured tunas:


Chef Ichimura plates everything for you while you enjoy the meal – he places everything on your plate like it’s a piece of art:


Preparing the fish, which is flown in from Japan:


The plates were all very rustic pieces that didn’t match but worked well together. This tea cup was especially beautiful:


After dinner, we enjoyed some time together in their seating nook:


Chef Ichimura with me and Ken:


After our wonderful meal, Ken and I wanted a little more dessert so we walked over to Megu and ordered yuzu ice cream and a green tea mielle-crepe:


The meal was really delightful and definitely plan on returning soon.
