It’s a very good day for Bar Uchū, the exclusive sushi counter at 217 Eldridge St. In an announcement made a short time ago, the new Lower East Side sushi destination joined six other restaurants as first-time Michelin starred establishments in New York City.
In a press release, Michelin said of Bar Uchū, which just opened this past summer:
The Lower East Side earns its second Michelin-starred restaurant with Bar Uchū, a high-end concept with a kaiseki-inspired tasting menu. Here, head chef Samuel Clonts, formerly of Chef’s Table at Brooklyn Fare, brings his talents for crafting remarkable seafood dishes to the tasting menu.Design by Scott Kester Design.
