Nestled in the heart of the Theater District, this Japanese sushi/steak house offers tantalizing cuisine with a flair and presentation befitting a top Broadway musical. Chef Masaki Nakayama has developed a sizeable following for his playful, artistic interpretation of French-inflected Japanese cooking. Mr. Robata boasts a “robata” grill, a rustic Japanese grilling technique that originated in the country farmhouses of Japan. Their chefs attentively grill over charcoal to maintain precise temperatures constantly tending the grill to active perfection. Their sushi is of the highest quality and freshness, with a wide range of tantalizing signature rolls. Happy hour is 4-6pm with $7 specialty cocktails ($12 with choice of appetizer), and a prix-fixe dinner is available 5-730pm.
