And more awesome stuff other people did on the Internet today.
Thanks, Grub Street, for cluing us in on NYC’s omakase renaissance. The magazine ranked New York’s six best omakase-style restaurants, including chef Ichimura’s tasting menu at David Bouley’s Brushstroke. Now to get you really excited: Grub Street reports that the star apprentice of Tokyo sushi master Jiro Ono just opened an omakase-only sushi restaurant last week.
