Japanese chef Masaharu Morimoto made his indelible mark on Manhattan when he was head chef at the first Nobu in New York. Then restaurateur Stephen Starr whisked him away to Philadelphia to open Morimoto, in 2001, where the chef has been a big fish in --by New York standards -- a little pond. With the opening of this Morimoto in Chelsea Market, both Starr and the charismatic Iron chef make their foray into New York with a big splash. The world's largest noren, a red curtain used by a Japanese restaurant to signify it's open, covers the entrance and sets the scale for this 160-seat, bi-level giant. Japanese architect Tadao Ando creates a refreshing tone by building a wall of Ty Nant water bottles spanning both floors and an open kitchen surrounded by a 24-seat sushi bar. You can expect fresh fish flown in from Tokyo three times a week, inspiring an ever-changing, sometimes over-the-top menu that entertains and dazzles the senses with beautiful dishes like drunk shrimp (on sake) served with a fried rillette filled with lobster, live abalone cooked in a hot stone pot with butter yuzu and soy, and toro tartare with osetra caviar and creme fraiche adding to the extravagance. Out of the 160 seats, only eight comprise the omakase counter where guests shell out $120 for the chef's tasting menu and a front row seat of the action…totally worth it!
