15 East

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.
