Named after an important Japanese gourmand/ceramic artist, Rosanjin Kitaoji, who founded the Bishoku (Gourmet) Club, Rosanjin in Tribeca serves traditional Japanese kaiseki. Executive Chef Mr. Kazuki Shimazaki, an established kaiseki chef, brings authentic Kyoto-style cuisine to NY with his signature dashi (base) that he perfected working many years in Japan. Their menu often changes because they use the best ingredients available in the season, and accordingly you will find many Japanese delicacies here. Presentation is also a large part of their cuisine —- executed exquisitely at the establishment, from cuisine to the carefully coordinated ceramics, which is another legacy of Rosanjin Kitaoji. Typically, kaiseki is a course menu, and here at Rosanjin varieties of courses ranging from $80 to $200 are offered. Also Seasonal Mini Kaiseki is available for $40. They take it one step further to make kaiseki more accessible for everyone: they are offering “kaiseki-style a la carte dishes that enable casual dining experiences with a playful twist.” Their a la carte is a great way to sample authentic kaiseki cuisine according to your own budget. Sake pairings are also available with the courses.
