Last week, I went to an event at MEGU—a chic Japanese restaurant in Tribeca. The large, two-floor space is beautifully designed—bathed in a sea of beige, cool concrete and accents of red. The dining room boasts a large ice sculpture at its center—a feature brought in from Brooklyn each night—and an enormous spherical iron chandelier hovering above. Upstairs, the bar area is a kaleidoscope of color, with spools of fabric mounted behind glass on the walls. The nearby lounge, which overlooks the dining room, is the perfect place to people watch while enjoying a smart cocktail. MEGU offers a diverse array of sushi, sashimi and inventive dishes, including MEGU Original Crispy Asparagus and Foie Gras Chawanmushi a la Rossini—the restaurant’s original creation of egg custard with black truffle. Also visit the restaurant’s midtown location.
