Exclusive HIDDEN NYC Restaurant - Bohemian (kakurega)

Featured Sunday, 27 November 2016 08:06

New York does exclusivity well, but Tokyo does it better....

There is a Japanese phrase, “Ichigensama okotowari,” that’s used by owners of certain discriminating restaurants and shops, and means, roughly, “We respectfully decline first-time visitors.” In other words: walk-ins not welcome. To make a reservation or a purchase, you have to be recommended by a regular.

Bohemian is, naturally, hard to find—it’s a kakurega, or hidden place, tucked behind a Japanese butcher shop, in a building once owned by Andy Warhol. - New Yorker Magazine.

Basically - to get a booking, you need a referral from someone who has been before. Your name and phone number becomes your membership card - then you can invite others to join.

Join me as I travel the world eating the most amazing and exotic seafood.

In 2017 I visited a horse muster in rural Iceland - a tradition that has continued for generations. The community come together to bring the beautiful indigenous horses down from the mountains, and muster them back to farms. It was an amazing experience - a truly local tradition, that is not made for tourists.
