Patience grasshopper, there are some restaurants where experience trumps food. In the Time Warner Center in Columbus Circle, you’ll be transported up the escalators to an ethereal realm where chef Masa creates one of the premier dining experiences in the world. Blending the philosophies of shibui (simplicity and honesty) and umami (the inherent essence,) he prepares sushi on a glowing counter of Japanese hinoki cypress against a bamboo and ikebana backdrop. With no set menu, customers must surrender to the flow (and available ingredients)—so open minds are as appreciated as open mouths.

Insider Tip:

There’s another reason Masa is considered a once-in-a-lifetime experience—the bill. As dinner for two can easily run you $800, make this the special occasion of all occasions.
