MICHELIN Guide 2017
8 W. 18th St., New York 10011
From $25 to $49


This Japanese chain boasts more than 300 locations throughout Asia, and now claims three more here in the Big Apple. Thankfully the chic interior does nothing to convey chain dining. Instead, the look is understated with wood slats, ikebana, and muted tones. Ootoya's budget-friendly pricing ensures a full house. Hearty, home-style fare is the hallmark of their expansive menu of (mostly) cooked specialties. House-made tofu, rice bowls, fried free-range chicken with sweet-and-sour sauce, and pork katsu are but just a few of the product-focused items on offer. The lunch sets are an excellent value, built around fine quality fish such as saikyo miso-marinated grilled salmon with chawan mushi, steamed brown rice, and grains, accompanied by a heartwarming miso soup.
