Morimoto

Morimoto doesn’t just serve tasty Japanese cuisine, it is also an architectural treat. From the building’s facade to the restrooms; everything is ultra modern and adds to the high-end, trendy vibe. Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto earned his reputation among New Yorkers for his work at all-time favorite Nobu, and now he is ready to take over the world with Morimoto. The food is exquisite and worth every penny. They serve creative Asian Fusion dishes but also beloved classics such as fatty tuna, spicy salmon and california rolls. If you want to try something new, go with the Toro Tartare, which comes with a selection of sauces/garnishing and is to be prepared by you. What else is great about this restaurant? It’s just a few blocks away from the bustling club scene of Meatpacking District, making this the perfect stop before hitting the night life.

Catch

Since its opening last fall, Catch has been a magnet for the good looking Meatpacking crowd of models, rock stars and business moguls. This three-level seafood restaurant with lounge/club area is loud, vibrant and happening! Don’t mind the looooong waits and snooty front desk girls; once you’re seated, you’ll love it! Seafood lovers will be treated to a surprising selection of sushi & sashimi, “big fish” (that serves two people),  raw bar items like oysters and “simply cooked” choices including sole, swordfish and tuna. Top Chef winner Hung Huynh runs the kitchen and with mouthwatering dishes such as crab-stuffed calamari, he affirms this title. The waiting staff at Catch is friendly and accommodating and knows how to deal with large groups. So bring lots of friends but don’t expect to “catch” up with them since the loud music and buzzing scene don’t really allow it. Overall, Catch is a great fish addition to the Meatpacking area and we recommend going there before it turns into just another has-been restaurant.
