"This is the quintessential 'neighborhood joint.' Great food, fair prices, friendly service. Nice place to go relax and enjoy a filling meal. (Also a great choice either before or after a movie at AMC Kips Bay.)"

When Shinbashi originally opened in 1974 waitresses wearing traditional clothing served the then novel sushi and traditional Japanese dishes. Shinbashi became popular amongst Japanese businessmen visiting New York and the restaurant was reviewed in the New York Times by Ruth Reichi in 1998 calling it "venerable Japanese." The new incarnation is following in the tradition of attracting Japanese guests but does so in a modern setting. The restaurant remains streamlined and cleanly lit so as to showcase the food. Quality of fish and presentation are of the highest standard and it is this attention to detail that is carried into the attentive service. Shinbashi offers an environment for you to appreciate your meal at the pace you choose and the space to enjoy your conversation.

"There are several very good Japanese restaurants in the area, this is clearly one of the best. Prices are not cheap, but not over the top either. Food is super-fresh and well prepared. [Service can be a bit slow during the busiest part of the lunch hour.]"

"I'm a big fan of their lunches. And the outdoor dining is a treat when weather permits (away from the street so noise and car fumes are less of an issue)."

"For Yankee fans, and baseball fans. Great looking restaurant. Excellent place for a meat-eaters lunch. Pricey, but the specials are worthwhile. (If you can't get a table at the Yankee Stadium location, this is a very good alternative.)"

"A really nice atmosphere. They've moved down the block from the previous location. New place has a more open feel (and more light). Perfect for post-theater dining."

"I like that it's significantly away from the curb so there's no issue with exhaust fumes (as is the case with too many sidewalk set ups). Great, fresh sushi/sashimi. Service can be slow at lunch so allow sufficient time for the meal."

Keens Steakhouse, a classic New York chophouse, was already famous for its steaks and chops at the turn of the century. Founded in 1885, Keens has 90,000 clay pipes that line the ceilings – pipes once smoked by customers after dinner. Today Keens legendary mutton chops and dry aged prime steaks are still without equal in the city.
