Ichimura at Brushstroke **

brushstroke sushi 鮨

Brushstroke sushi chef Eiji Ichimura serves traditional edo-mae sushi in an intimate setting. This master chef’s omakase menus start at $180, with Chef Ichimura improvising and tailoring the menu to each individual customer.

Seating in the sushi area is extremely limited, and reservations must be made via our reservations hotline at 212-791-3771.

Over the years, I have been fortunate enough to have the trust of my guests in preparing their meals. With a customer’s particular interests in mind, we are able to utilize smaller amounts of unique seasonal products, quantities that would have been too small to include on our menus due to the will of Mother Nature. Late summer brings us heirloom tomatoes, autumn its white truffles, exotic fruits in winter and wild ramps in spring. Our one constant through the changing seasons is our goal to maintain a dialogue between chef and guest to ensure joy and satisfaction.

Chef’s Pass is a unique multimedia dining experience that brings the guest closer to the artisan and the chef than ever before.

Chef’s Pass is named for the area in the kitchen where the finishing touches are applied to each dish, then passed to the server.

Seating up to 13 guests, this intimate space is nestled between the kitchen and main dining room. Inside the Chef’s Pass, Chef Bouley personally familiarizes you with the ingredients that compose his dishes, and via Skype introduces you to the artisans who create the products that inspire him. Food journalists, nutritionists, and purveyors from all over the world appear on a 72” screen to field questions about unique pairings, interesting recipes or seasonal ingredients. Streaming photographs further enhance your voyage to markets worldwide, from Japan to Austria, Cape Code to France.

A specially designed tasting menu is assembled in front of you on a polished, terra toned petrified wood table under a 1930′s teardrop chandelier. Guests can also take advantage of the screen to present their own slideshows, personalizing and further enhancing their celebration.


The multifunctional Bouley Test Kitchen serves as an elegant event space, an interactive classroom, and a state-of-the-art culinary laboratory. Working with food constantly offers new challenges – dietary trends come and go, ingredients evolve with the climate, and our own desire to surpass our previous accomplishments pushes us to discover new techniques.

The Test Kitchen offers an arena for the Bouley team to develop and extend these advanced approaches to product selection, preparation, and presentation. One recipe can inspire 13 other sub-recipes. It’s a fast experimental pace. For example, a week’s worth of testing new breads under the guidance of a Meilleur Ouvrier de France (MOF) breadmaster from Tours resulted in 30 new items that will be utilized in Bouley’s flagship restaurant and catered events. The well crafted menus of Bouley and brushstroke stand as a testament to this spirit of experimentation.

As an educational center, the Bouley Test Kitchen provides a space for guests to learn from visiting chefs through classes and demonstrations. Instruction is provided for all aspects of food preparation – selecting the right ingredients, creating dishes that complement one another, and assembling a cohesive meal which can be recreated at home. As well as technique, classes focus on food education and culture. To help students become better acquainted with their cuisine, an analysis of each recipe’s nutritional components is presented. Guests also explore  products that could be used for those with special dietary needs and allergies.

A 200-square-foot wall of slate allows David Bouley and his guest chefs to map handwritten recipes and chalk drawings of all possible menu items being tested in a given session. A library of more than 8,000 cookbooks provides inspiration as well as archives of past techniques. The Test Kitchen also features handcrafted Nautilus speakers and an emerald illuminated turntable powered by the McIntosh Sound System and equipment from artisanal industry leaders like Molteni, Koma, Rational, and Electrolux.

Private Dining Events & Catering are opportunities for us to work more closely with our guests; occasions for us to share our dedication to celebration in exciting new ways. We put a tremendous amount of emotion into what we do—so when people taste what we have executed, they can feel that there is a lot of love that goes into it. That also translates into how we do catering and private dining. My hope is someday all of our guests, both new and loyal, will have the chance to enjoy these experiences—and that they continue to challenge and inspire us. That’s what keeps us moving forward.

– Chef David Bouley

Over the years, Bouley has embraced a variety of challenges in his catering experiences. When asked to cater an event on the side of a mountain in the Maine’s Acadia National Forest, David rose to the occasion. The plates were made of tree trunks, and the team erected tents. “There was moss everywhere,” David explains. “We were in the middle of nature, in the middle of nowhere. We all worked together on the design and the logistics—including how to get water to the location.” Another time, Bouley was cooking at Washington State’s Chateau Ste. Michelle winery for 650 people when a thunderstorm cut off the electricity. The team put on headlamps and scrambled for firewood. They ended up cooking over “ovens that we made out of old wine barrels.” The dinner was a huge success. “Each challenge makes us ready to take on the next, and each day we’re raising the bar to surpass our customer’s expectations.”

Bouley believes that creating meals away from the comfort of his restaurants forces him and his team to operate at a higher level of performance. With fewer distractions, David is able to focus on the execution in a different way possible than in the restaurant. As he has discovered, the unforeseen circumstances that arise when cooking in an unfamiliar environment bring out the best in him.
