Having been a staple in the West Coast for many years, the globally praised culinary concept from SBE’s Disruptive Restaurant Group (DRG) and renowned Master Sushi Chef Katsuya Uechi sees a new home in the concrete jungle. Taking space in Citizens New York, the newly opened culinary destination set along the high-line joins Casa Dani—the highly-rated Southern Spanish restaurant from Michelin-starred Chef Dani Garcia— as the second and final newly added restaurant experience within the new luxe food hub.
