welcome to
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 complement your dining experience, we have an extensive list of artisanal sake and shochu, signature cocktails, wine and full bar.

New Year's Eve 2016

Saturday, December 31st
$180 per person (seatings until 6:45pm will also have a lighter $145 option)
*regular menu will not be available, prix fixe only

The biggest time for celebration in Japan is the New Year, and that's true for us here in New York, and that's true for us here at EN.

Chef Abe has done it again, with a menu featuring top-quality, local and Japanese ingredients. Please click here to view the menu.

Throughout the night, we will be performing mochi rice pounding in the dining room, where guests are welcome to take turns turning freshly steamed glutinous rice into mochi with a mallet and stone mortar. Because of its texture, mochi is a symbol of "sticking together" and "sticking to one's ambitions and goals".

The prix fixe menu will be $180 per person, not including beverage, tax or gratuity. A vegan prix fixe will be available as well, and most allergies and dietary restricitons can be accommodated. Earlier seatings (6:45pm and prior) will have the option to select a lighter $145 menu. EN's regular a la carte menu will not be offered that evening, though some light fare will be available in the bar area.

For later seatings, guests are welcome to join us for the countdown to 2017, when we will crack open a sake barrel as a traditional sign of good luck for the new year, and offer complimentary servings of the sake for everyone to toast with.

To book, please contact the restaurant by calling 212-647-9196 ext.1

please note that EN will be closed on
Christmas Day (Sun 12/25) and New Year's Day (Sun 1/1)

*please note that there will be no Abe's Kitchen event in December, but a waitlist is available for January.
