I will be visiting to NYC later this month (August) and was looking to see if anyone knows of any good Japanese Restaurants and Japanese Bakeries that are around The Roosevelt Hotel, where I will be staying with my family? When doing a search over the Internet I found the Menchanko-Tei Restaurant just down the street from the Hotel and Minamoto Kitchoan in Rockefeller Plaza. I've read of a lot of good things about Kyotofu on these boards but that's a little distance from the Hotel, I think. Also I'd like to find some of those green tea truffles that are shown on:
You will have to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page to see them. If these are the same kind that were sent to me from a friend of mine in Japan (attached picture) all I can say is WOW!! I love them!!
Thanks for any help!
