Though there are many Japanese restaurants around New York City, I bet you can't find one like this. While it appears to be a Japanese fusion restaurant, this place offers a variety of authentic Japanese comfort food for a great deal!
The owner of Norikoh, Kristina Pan has had a connection with Japanese food and culture long before she worked in the Japanese restaurant industry. Under the influences of Japanese occupation, Pan grew up eating Japanese food her grandmother prepared as she was accustomed to the Japanese way of cooking. Incorporated her childhood memories with her working experience at Haru Sushi, Pan opened Norikoh at 10 E 39th Street in 2014.
Whether you're here for lunch or dinner, you're not only guaranteed to try some quality food at a reasonable price, but you also won't have to worry over not having enough. Whatever main course you ordered, all izakaya lunch sets include mix green salad, pumpkin croquette, white rice, and miso soup while dinner sets have more to offer: sauteed sesame burdock carrots, potato salad, 2 pieces of chicken gyoza and more.
Whenever you come you can always expect some promotions as they do happy hours and themed nights such as wine night, whiskey night and Japanese whiskey+sake night.
The second location is much bigger than the first one, and could thus accommodate larger groups for private events. With the weather warming up, outdoor seats will also be available!
