MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

After honing his skills at the New York outpost of O Ya, Chef Don Pham has made his way to this quiet residential stretch of the Upper East Side, where he delivers a profoundly solid and wallet-friendly omakase each night. This space is minimalist and very pleasant, largely thanks to the chef’s charming presence, as he informs counter guests of the provenance of each morsel of fish—most often sourced from Japan.

Meals arrive primarily as a parade of nigiri, presented one piece at a time on a ceramic slab with chopped bits of pickled ginger. Highlights may reveal torched barracuda or shima-aji with a spicy dab of chilies. That procession may be broken up with delicious small plates, such as smoked bonito with shaved summer truffles and ponzu sauce.
