This modern restaurant and bar promises a cross-cultural dynamic that integrates New York urbanity, Asian artistic sophistication, and most important, a well-chosen selection of Japanese dishes. Kiraku is known for its sushi, so try innovative offerings like the sweet, spicy and crunchy tropical roll, bursting with scallops, cucumber, wasabi, lobster, and mango. Or ditch the rice altogether and opt for the spicy crunchy tuna naruto, a five-piece roll with spicy tuna, avocado, and tempura flakes wrapped in cucumber. For something hot off the skillet, specialty dishes include red snapper, Thai green curry, and Malaysian red curry.
