Served in a traditional kaiseki-style menu, this multi-course lunch reflects both the style of dining and the incredible skill, craft and technique used by a master sushi chef.

Fresh produce is foraged from nearby Union Square Market, while first-rate seafood is flown in daily from Japan, ensuring the highest quality and freshness. Noteworthy dishes include red snapper sashimi; shocked in an ice bath to condense the flesh and preserve flavor, and Madako octopus which is massaged 500 times with a salt rub before being poached for exactly 40 minutes to create tender, meat-like cross-sections.

This lunch tasting menu offers a unique combination of offerings from the sushi bar, along with cooked dishes from the kitchen which the New York Times says makes 15 East "stand out in a crowded marketplace of Japanese restaurants".
