When 15 East first opened, I believe I dined there about 3 times in the first two weeks. I have continued to return and return.
Marco Moreira started his small empire on 15th Street with Tocqueville. A beautiful serene restaurant with delicious food, lunch and dinner. Marco expanded next door with 15 East. 15 East is Japanese cuisine and sushi. I think it is one of the best sushi restaurants in the city. Fresh soba noodles, fresh fish, creative concepts. Love it.
Friday night, I went to a private party at 15 East. The space worked beautifully. The food was absolutely delicious. Service was excellent. A really lovely night.
As the night wore on, and everyone gabbed and drank more, it was hard to appreciate the food. I plan on returning in the next week so I can enjoy a quiet evening in the tranquil dining room and savor the delicious food.
