Asian fusion is popular these days, but it’s often hard to find authentic Japanese done well. Izakaya Ten offers both. Welcoming the solo diner and larger parties, this place bills themselves as home-cooked. It’s not far from the truth. The warmth of the environment, the friendly staff and a vast offering of superb dishes, their aim is to make you feel at home—while exploring the culinary expanse of Japan. For a sea-worthy adventure, go with the Tako Yaki octopus balls. If meat is your want, the Saikoro Beef Steak reigns supreme. It also happens to be hot for a drink after a long night out. So close to the Highline, there’s no better time to explore New York’s elevated park. Experimental theater production Sleep No More continues its run just a few blocks north. If you aren't down for Hitchcock meets Macbeth, their jazz fueled Manderlay Bar, their rooftop Gallows and their music hall The Heath offer performative presentation that takes you right out of time. No one can predict what will unfold while at the McKittrick.
