Well-executed dishes that fuse Japanese and Italian fare are the focus at Kimika, a Nolita restaurant led by executive chef Christine Lau. Bringing more than 15 years of industry experience, Lau’s menu has captivated New Yorkers with a delicious approach to an oft-attempted cuisine hybrid. Brunch options include the Baked Eggs with sweet italian sausage and spicy cabbage; Veggie Tamagoyaki Frittata Sandwich; and Matcha Mochi French Toast with citron syrup available alongside a menu of signature Pizzette Frittes and pastas.

Mix it up a little this year and take home a Japanese-Italian feast by Kimika’s executive chef Christine Lau. The centerpiece of the holiday package is a choice of turchetta (that’s turkey breast prepared in the same style as Italian porchetta) or porchetta served with truffle gravy, miso mustard, salsa verde, and cranberry mostarda. Also included in the package are sides like crispy mixed beans with golden furikake; spicy olives and seasonal pickled vegetables; seaweed focaccia; roasted carrots with sesame ponzu and chili oil; and Japanese sweet rice stuffing with porcini and matsutake mushrooms and chestnuts. In addition to holiday-inspired dishes, you’ll take home an order of the restaurant’s popular crispy rice cake lasagna with sweet Italian sausage, kimchi, scallions, and provolone. Plus, pastry chef Clarice Lam has dessert covered with a warm apple crostata with kabocha ice cream mochi and kimchi caramel.

Pastry chef Clarice Lam has a whole slate of stellar summer desserts including a layered tiramisu with espresso jelly, genmaicha cream, chocolate ladyfingers, candied hazelnuts, and cocoa kinako. But the soft serve at Kimika is a true standout. For brunch, the restaurant offers a vegan banana soft serve with coconut-goji berry granola, rhubarb-acai syrup, and chocolate chunks. On the dinner menu, the soft serve flavor is inspired by Yakult, a sweetened probiotic drink that’s wildly popular across Asia, and comes swirled with roasted strawberries, crispy chicken skin streusel, and strawberry pocky pearls on top.

When the team behind Wayla opened up Kimika in mid-August, they began serving a mashup of Italian and Japanese fare to packed patios five nights a week. Now the restaurant’s dining room on the ground level of the Nolitan hotel is open again and guests can book an elaborate Wagyu Shabu Shabu dinner with multiple courses featuring A5 wagyu strip loin, 100 day dry aged ribeye, and rich bone marrow bollito misto broth or order a la carte from the restaurant’s standard menu.
