Michael Schlow and executive chef Derek Watson (of Morimoto fame) have curated a menu with everything from a full sushi bar to hot entrees like a Koji-aged pork chop and wagyu New York strip. Top your meal off with a pour from one of the most extensive sake menus in the city and Nama Ko's signature soft-serve ice cream and sorbet offerings, including a honey-miso black truffle flavor.
It can be tough to find a table during restaurant week, but Nama Ko is increasing your chances by extending deals for a second week (through January 28). The menu is carefully crafted by executive chef Derek Watson and chef Michael Schlow. The three-course, $55 offering features Japanese favorites like crispy shrimp tempura, koji aged pork chop, and sashimi or sushi. Save room for dessert because pastry chef Alex Levin’s mouthwatering honey miso black truffle soft-serve ice cream is a highlight.
