A Theater District standout. Haru Broadway is a modern Japanese restaurant with ample portions and striking design, located a block from Time Square's 42nd Street. Its elegant interior, featuring a striking birch ‘wall’ that separates the main dining space from the full bar and sushi bar, is matched by a creative and smartly-priced menu for Japanese cuisine connoisseurs and first time diners alike.

"I like this Haru either when people are in the theater, or post-theater. (Pre-theater they can seem overwhelmed by the crowd.) I think the sushi/sashimi is average, but the other cooked dishes are quite nicely done."

"Tried the upstairs bar area (alternative) restaurant. The kobe beef burgers are first rate--but the atmosphere is nothing special and the service was unimpressive. If you have an urge for Megu, go to the regular downstairs restauran,t which is indeed special--but if you have an urge for a top notch burger and fries, and don't care much about the rest, then this is a good choice."

Restaurant Nippon opened in August 1963, becoming the first Japanese Restaurant in the U.S.A. with an authentic sushi bar. <br> In 1988, we introduced nihachi soba (with ratio of 80% of buckwheat flour to 20% of wheat flour) made from buckwheat seeds cultivated at our own farm in CANADA. <br> In 1989, after five years of negotiations with the F.D.A., we received an exclusive license to import Japanese " Tiger Blow Fish " ( Tora Fugu). <br> In November 2006, we became the only importers of natural wasabi from the Gifu prefecture, Japan. <br> In 2007, we started producing and serving tofu, home-made daily with soy beans cultivated at the Canadian farm. <br> On November 11, 2009, for the above contributions in the promotion of Japanese culture through Japanese food, owner and president of Restaurant Nippon, Nobuyoshi Kuraoka, was awarded by the Japanese Government " The Order of The Rising Sun, Gold Rays with Rosette ", (Tantamount to British Knighthood )

"Far more than just superior sushi/sashimi, they have an outstanding menu. Stand outs are the home-made silky tofu and buckwheat soba noodles. But, prices are high so if you're on a budget watch what you order."

"Upstairs in an office building this is a real treat. The grill your own bbq is fun and the quality of the meat makes it a great meal. Go with a group and share various cuts of beef, etc."

During Prohibition the Hudson Bond was a speakeasy; a place for writers, artists and journalists to gather and discuss their next concepts and creative endeavors. The bar's password was "Henry Hudson" and the “bond” that formed between the secret patrons is its namesake. This former speakeasy re-opened in December as a sophisticated restaurant/bar/lounge with a private event space downstairs behind black curtains, reminiscent of the Prohibition era. The Hudson Bond is located at 215 West 40th (40th St. between 7th and 8th avenue) nestled between the lights of Broadway and the corporate offices of The New York Times and Ernst & Young. With an energetic and a friendly work environment, The Hudson Bond is a favorite for the happy hour crowd and we have now extended service with our Brunch & A Movie and Dinner & A Movie events every Sunday.

"Steak and seafood were terrific, waiters were knowledgeable and helpful. [Note, while prime rib is on the menu, it clearly was re-heated making it more like a rib steak than a rib roast, while tasty, I'd only recommend it on weekends.]"

Rich earth tones of orange, red and brown impart warmth to the cool and tranquil space. Thin tapestries of translucent rose fabric are embellished with flame motifs and suspended from the ceiling, creating a separate seating area perfect for a light bite near the large front windows. <br />Famous for its unique and mouth-watering interpretation of Japanese cuisine. Upscale Japanese fare is given a jolt of new life through an innovative use of ingredients, resulting in refreshing and exciting flavor combinations. Crispy Rice with Spice Tuna, an addictive version of the classic spicy tuna roll, featuring warm grilled rice topped with a thick layer of cool, savory tuna. Baked Crab Roll, for which succulent fresh crabmeat is wrapped in a thin rice crepe paper dotted with sesame seeds and baked to perfection. Hamachi Fusion with Soy-Citrus and Truffle Essence all artfully plated by Koi’s skilled culinary team.
