Please note: this business is now closed; nycgo.com keeps record of many old and closed venues. Matsuri’s stunning interior is spacious yet intimate, with Japanese cuisine that is simple and refreshingly traditional, celebrating seasonal and quality ingredients. On the upper balcony level, overlooking the main dining room, is the balcony lounge and bar. On the lower level is the Sake Room, which is open for general seating and is also available for private events. An extensive sake and shochu list includes 200-plus bottles, many of which can only be found in Japan. A sake sommelier is on-site.
