Review from Chopsticks New York:

New York City has an abundance of hidden treasures, and one of those pearls is a beautifully designed establishment in the East Village known as Jewel Bako. Headed by culinary prodigy Yoshi Kousaka and his team of taste specialists, Jewel Bako combines artistic elegance with a mouth-watering savoriness that makes every dining experience unforgettable. One of the many defining characteristics of Jewel Bako is the absence of the prevalent bar refrigerator most sushi restaurants use to cool raw ingredients. With nothing there to block Chef Yoshi’s masterful technique, the customer is now able to have an interactive experience where he or she can receive personal recommendations and/or taste exquisite delicacies from the chef’s “secret menu.” While it’s the marvelous food that attracts stars such as Richard Gere, Yoko Ono, and Natalie Portman to Jewel Bako, it’s the friendly environment and aesthetic beauty of the meal that keeps them coming back for more. The chef’s secret menu is only available to those who sit at the counter, and with a limited number of seats available, it would be wise to plan ahead of time. Trust me, it’s worth the extra effort.
