Geisha

33 E. 61st St.
New York , NY , United States http://www.geisharestaurant.com/index2.html

The French-inspired Japanese cuisine at Geisha, in the upper East Side, is at once complex and elegant, as is the ambiance. Dark maple wood walls are accented with tangerine-colored cherry blossoms, soft fabrics are artfully draped over chairs, and strands of silver beads (reminiscent of a geisha's headdress) glitter over the low-lying tables. Start your meal with a shrimp lollipop: coriander-marinated shrimp on a sugar cane skewer. Continue with the tuna truffle maki roll, diced akami with spicy mayonnaise and black truffle, or the toro belly topped with flakes of gold.
