Eat with your eyes
Feast your eyes not only on the divine food they offer here but also the spectacular views. Located on the 52nd floor of the Park Hyatt Tokyo, New York Grill is hard to fault. It's just done really well. Great menu, great food, great views.
The restaurant and bar was one of the main locations for the film, Lost in Translation, starring Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson. The two characters first meet in the bar and you see beautiful shots of the restaurant and the view from the bar.
Fresh seafood, mouth-watering beef
Their worldwide inspired menu combines the freshest and seasonal ingredients including a wide selection of prime quality Japanese and imported beef, market fresh seafood, and poultry roasted on their in-house rotisserie.
Lunch and Brunch
Lunch is enormously popular at New York Grill. Lunch starts from 5,500 yen with the option of adding on extras to your main meal.
It all starts with an appetizer buffet. Yes, an appetizer buffet!
There's quite a good selection of mains to choose from including Grilled Kagoshima Chicken Breast, Butternut Squash Purée, Oven Roasted Vegetables, Grilled Chiba Pork Loin, Celeriac Horseradish Purée, Glazed Mushrooms, and Tsukiji Market Fish, Roasted Tomatoes, Tomato Coulis; plus plenty of domestic premium beef to choose from.
A massive upside of the Lunch course is the dessert buffet. So many gorgeous desserts to drool over, that's for sure!
Brunch is a similar affair here with the only difference being that you're going to enjoy a glass of champagne with your meal.
You can either go a la carte or choose to go with one of the courses. Personally, I think the courses look pretty phenomenal. Starting at 11,000 for a 3-course meal, 16,000 for 4 courses, and 20,000 for 5 courses, you're definitely in for a treat!
These courses are designed by Chef de Cuisine and Argentian native Federico Heinzmann. He's crafted this perfect course to delight not just your taste buds but also your eyes! Japanese beef cheek pastrami, pickled cucumbers and horseradish gets you started, while you'll enjoy Kuruma shrimps then grilled wagyu from Sendai with a wasabi puree further down the course.
Would you believe they have a cellar with over 1,800 bottles of wine? Well, for one, it's true. Secondly, they also have one of the largest collections of North American wines available in Japan.
