Summer Restaurant Week is on! Through July 31, out of the 250+ eateries participating, we bring you a crib sheet to our favorites.
62 Thomas Street near West Broadway; 212-964-7777; megunyc.com
Why: Because on a regular day, you can drop $180 on a single portion of beef (Kobe, natch) at this astronomically priced but utterly phenomenal American outpost of the Japanese restaurants.
What to order off the RW menu: Try the “chef’s choice” negiri and half roll to get a sense of Megu’s delicate way with sushi. To follow, you could stay surf-side with grilled silver cod saikyo miso with parsley sauce, or sample some of that fabled Kobe beef, in a “premium” (isn’t everything?) Washugyo steak served with platinum (kind of another word for “premium”) rice. Dessert is chef’s choice – but this is one of the best restaurants anywhere to leave your palate in the kitchen’s ever-capable hands. (See the full menu – which is available at dinner only -- here.)
During Restaurant Week, lunch at participating establishments is $24.07, dinner $35.00. Reserve early.
