After receiving international acclaim at Ginza Sushi-Ko in Beverly Hills, where he worked for twenty years, in 2004 Japanese chef Masayoshi Takayama moved to the Time Warner Center in New York, where he offers a prix fixe omakase menu for 400 dollars (plus 9% tax, 20% service and drinks separately). As a starter they serve gingko nuts, a variety that is picked from the trees in Central Park, accompanied by fried prawn legs.
