Traditional Roots For A Japanese Restaurant In New York

Japanese cuisine is bound by a long culinary tradition. Food preparation is a thoughtful and deliberate art, practiced and refined by Japanese chefs according to principles of long-surviving cultural heritage. The most-revered Japanese dishes are made to appeal to all five senses, using simple and whole ingredients in complex but subtle ways.

The essence of Japanese food is a combination of healthiness and balance. As an island nation, Japan’s staple ingredients include seafood, rice, fresh vegetables, pickled and fermented foods. Beautifully marbled Wagyu beef is one of the world’s most acclaimed red meats, and chicken and pork are used in innovative ways. Japanese cuisine doesn’t have excessive amounts of over-processed foods or too much sugar, making it low in calories and exponentially healthier than many other food traditions.

Kobeyaki stays true to the core tenets of Japanese cuisine. We’ve given traditional food a unique twist that modern eaters enjoy, and have merged it with the principles of fast, friendly customer service that contemporary diners demand. We're serious about food integrity but easygoing and casual about giving our guests some of the best burgers, buns, bowls, and sushi in New York.

The high principles of Japanese food preparation continue to inspire us every day, as we continue to build upon the most convenient, welcoming, and delicious teriyaki, burger, and sushi restaurant in New York.
