New Japanese restaurant in Hudson Square

I’m not sure when I will get up there so report back if you make it in: a new Japanese restaurant, Mishik, opened yesterday in Hudson Square — just north of Solidcore on Hudson and Watts.

The chef and partner is Markee Manaloto, formerly an omakase chef at the Michelin-starred Sushi Yasuda (in Midtown) and Kissaki (on the Bowery). He will be offering Edomae-style sushi omakase as well as an a la carte menu. There are two omakase options (12 or 16 nigiri pieces plus a handroll, soup and dessert for $120 or $165 respectively) and a chef’s tasting menu ($135).

Manaloto cures and dry ages the fish in house according to Edomae tradition with items like yellowtail aged one week and blue fin otoro aged for two weeks. Dishes from the seven-course tasting menu include scallop sashimi with Asian pear, crispy shitake and truffle ponzu; donburi rice bowl topped with tuna tartar, nori and jidori egg yolk; and Yakiniku koji-marinated steak with black truffle emulsion.


The space has a 15-seat sushi bar for the omakase menu; another 13-seat bar; as well as a dining room, all designed by Studio Rolling (Mari and Kochi).

More when I can stop by.
