Venue Info

Housed in a nondescript brick building Downtown, O Ya, from James Beard Award winner Tim Cushman, is home to upscale Japanese cuisine, lavish omakase-style dining, and one of the city’s most impressive sake collections. O Ya is an experience in flavor and culture: Cushman’s menu fuses unexpected, modern ingredients into his 18- or 24-course omakase menus, with nigiri and sashimi compositions like hamachi topped with a banana pepper, nori-wrapped rice topped with foie gras, balsamic-chocolate kabayaki, and raisin-cocoa pulp, and a Hokkaido scallop with black truffle, sake-sea urchin jus, and chervil. Cushman’s menu reaches far beyond sushi, with categories dedicated to beef, truffles and eggs, somen and soba, tempura, and “other stuff.” O Ya is one of the city’s most lauded restaurants, and is a unique experience worth the (high) price tag.
