In New York soon? Check out Zuma at 261 Madison Avenue. Zuma, founded by Rainer Becker is a modern, Japanese inspired restaurant, totally worth the hype and a visit if in the city.

Zuma has a brilliant location, in midtown Manhattan, close to Grand Central Station. With it’s modern, Zen interior, the restaurant has a great atmosphere to accompany the amazing menu. Check here for location.

With three kitchens, there are many options that include cold, grilled and sushi dishes. A real stand out dish is the ‘ebi no tempura’, which is rock shrimp with a side of lime and chili mayo. It is amazing!

The restaurant has a bar lounge upstairs, where food is also served. For a more chilled out and casual experience, I would suggest booking a table to sit in the lounge. The resident DJ plays in the bar and lounge Monday – Saturday from 19-30, so it makes a good location to stay and have a drink after the meal and experience the atmosphere further. The bar has a brilliant selection of cocktails too.
