Recent openings: Tsukimi on 10th Street

Tsukimi opened in late June at 228 E. 10th St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue.

This Kaiseki-inspired restaurant's menu, via executive chef Takanori Akiyama, offers an 11-course tasting menu. Here's more via a preview at Eater:

The meal can start with nori and fluke, progress to a dish with bluefin tuna, goldeneye snapper, and bigfin reef squid, and end with olive oil yogurt, according to a sample menu (see it below). Of the 11 dishes, three will be sweet. They’ll all be served within a 14-seat space that’s divided in half by an aisle, with two seven-seat counters facing each other, a space designed by Brooklyn-based Studio Tack.

The outside doesn't look like much... but! The restaurant's interior merited a write-up at ArchPaper earlier this week...

Akiyama's NYC credits include Dieci, which was the previous tenant in this space.

The restaurant is open Wednesday-Sunday for a 7 p.m. seating. After Labor Day, seating times will be 6 and 9 p.m.

"That menu will cost $195 per person, with a beverage pairing option for an additional $125"

The new EV: $195(for food tasting menu) +$125 (for sake and wine) or cookies at Schmackery or coffee or tea. Every day seems to bring more news of affordable, comfortable neighborhood oriented eating options closing. I’m not against this new restaurant (having spent this much for kaiseki in Japan), just lamenting the loss of “neighborhood” options.
