EN Japanese Brasserie

Experience dining in our beautiful, authentic Japanese restaurant located in the West Village of Manhattan. Chef Abe Hiroki offers a modern approach to the rich traditions of Japanese cooking. Like we do in Japan, we cook with the seasons, and savor the peak flavor of ingredients.

We have created an extensive menu, featuring dishes as fresh tofu (prepared six times a night), Saikyo Miso Black Cod, Washugyu and Wagyu steak, an assortment of sashimi and signature sushi rolls and Kaiseki tasting menus. To compliment your dining experience, we have an extensive list of artisanal sake and shochu, signature cocktails, wine and full bar.

lunch menu, reborn!
Monday thru Friday, 12pm - 2:30pm

EN opened its doors for lunch service in 2009, and since then, we've had the pleasure of serving our "teishoku" tray lunches to beloved regulars and visitors manifold. Now, at long last, in reponse to countless inquiries and requests - and thanks to your continued patronage - we are proud to announce that we are expanding our lunch menu to include most of our favorite dishes from the dinner menu as well!

The items now available include Garlic Shiso Fried Rice, Stone Grilled Organic Chicken, Wagyu and Washugyu steaks, uni don, EN house salad, shabu shabu salad, tuna & avocado salad, kurobuta natto lettuce wrap, agedashi tofu, yama-imo isobe-age, mushi yasai and mochi croquette.

Remaining unavailable are our sushi rolls and clay rice pots.

Sadly, we had to bid farewell to lunch star-player Tonkatsu Sando (Berkshire pork cutlet sandwich). We send our apologies to any fans.

We look forward to seeing you at lunch, with more variety on your table!
Please note that the same changes do not apply to the Brunch menu.

And now, here is a short clip of Chef Abe finishing up a Garlic Shiso Fried Rice to simultaneously promote zen and stir up an appetite.
