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.
