Needless to say, we were psyched when Boston’s favorite Japanese restaurant opened a New York location in June. The upscale sushi spot has been a fixture of Beantown’s dining scene 2007, serving inventive dishes to the city’s fine dining set. But when O Ya‘s refined Japanese plates became available at the Park South Hotel, at first there were only two rather pricey options: either 18 ($185) or 24 course ($245) prix fixe.
Lucky for us, they recently launched an à la carte menu for those looking to avoid the hefty price tag (but still sample O Ya’s succulent concoctions). There’s a selection of nigiri and sashimi, as well as other small plates including warm somen noodles with fried big fin squid, onsen egg, dashi and yuzu kosho; foie gras gyoza with kyoto sansho and pink peppercorn; and shrimp tempura with black truffle emulsion. Prices range from $10 to $279.99 (for a ritzy wagyu take on “steak frites”), but trust us when we say this joint is worth whatever you can afford to spend spend. Check out the full menu below.
