Abe's Kitchen Counter

the last Tuesday of every month
$160 per person
limit two seatings of 8 guests

Our regular menu offers a wide array of food daily, but once a month, Chef Hiroki Abe gets to flex his culinary muscles and create a special, one-night-only menu.

Every month's menu is different depending on what is in peak season. Chef searches far and wide from the best purveyors to procure the freshest, best quality vegetables and seafood from Japan and local areas. To top it off, the service is exceptional - Abe prepares and serves each course directly in front of the guest at our open kitchen counter.

The menu from last month is available to view here. Since the menu changes every month, this is more of a sample of what is offered rather than an exact representation.

Seats can be booked only by phone 212-647-9196 ext.1
There are two seatings of 8 guests each, one at 6pm and one at 9pm.
Reservations fill up quickly, but we do keep a waitlist as well.
