MIDTOWN WEST. The more accessible of Chef Masayoshi Takayama’s two NYC editions, Bar Masa is a stylish place to sip on fine wine, expertly-mixed cocktails or top-shelf sake while taking in the omnipresent cool of the clientele. The long African bubinga plank that serves as the bar, the walls covered with textured tiles made of Japanese limestone, and the dark wood accents these elements work in unison to create a sense of shibui, or natural simplicity. And, of course, the à la carte sushi menu gives patrons a glimpse at Takayama’s brilliance.
