East Village

Kyo Ya

94 E. 7th St.
New York, NY, 10079, United States
TEL: (212) 982-4140

Super-sized pricing and exquisite décor mark this subterranean Japanese restaurant high end for the East Village. A go-to destination for kaiseki—the intricately crafted 10-course meal once served during Japanese tea ceremonies—Kyo Ya integrates low lights, blonde woods, and sparse flora into a simple and elegant space both comfortable and transporting. Each meticulously prepared dish is presented with the decorum expected of a high-end Japanese eatery, but the young East Village crowd and laid-back neighborhood feel make for a relatively casual dining experience.

Insider Tip:

The restaurant's only signage is a wooden "Open" plaque hanging on the street-level, wrought-iron railing at the stairs.
