Dinner at Jōji in New York City

If you love Japanese food as much as I do and want to treat yourself to a very special and most luxurious meal, go to Jōji the next time you're in New York City. Renowned chef, Daniel Boulud, and sushi master George Ruan, along with sushi chefs Xiao Lin, and Wayne Cheng, teamed up to open the 18-seat omakase restaurant in an alcove of the city's Grand Central Terminal.

Last week, I had the pleasure of dining at Jōji. The two-hour experience features seasonal ingredients, premium fish straight from Japan, with fine sake and wine pairings. Dinner includes five appetizers, 14-pieces of nigiri sushi, and dessert. And because the restaurant space is so intimate, each of the three chefs personally oversee sushi service, making it even more memorable.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
