Eating My Way Through Tokyo: New York Grill

Valentine’s Day was more than two weeks ago and my mouth still waters when I think about the delicious meal my husband and I had at New York Grill. After a lazy day together, we went into the city for a romantic dinner. If you’re after dinner with a view, New York Grill is the perfect place to dine. It’s located on the 52nd floor of the Park Hyatt in Nishishinjuku, Tokyo and offers breathtaking panoramic views of the sprawling metropolitan city.

New York Grill and the accompanying bar adjacent to the restaurant were made famous when they were featured in the 2003 film, Lost in Translation, starring Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson. After trekking through the hotel and up to the 52nd floor, we were greeted by a hostess and led by the beautiful open kitchen and to our table. Any restaurant with an open kitchen always gets points in my book because I love being able to see the chefs at work.

The restaurant serves Western fare and is known for delicious steaks and delectable shellfish. Although they have a few tasting menus, my husband and I opted to order from the a la carte options and we were not disappointed. While the menu options are really nothing out of the ordinary in terms of steakhouses, the food was absolutely delicious. I started with the Chutoro Tuna Tataki with BBQ Spices, Guacamole, and Sesame Dressing and had the Australian Lamb Shank with Black Truffle Polenta as my entree. My husband and I shared Crispy Duck Fat Potato Fries and Sautéed Spinach with Olive Oil and Garlic as side dishes.

While the restaurant is pricey, to say the least, it’s the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion in Tokyo and I am glad we spent our Valentine’s Day 52 floors above the city. The view alone is completely worth seeing and the meal was easily one of the best meal we’ve had since our arrival in Japan more than 3 months ago.
