It's good news for Geisha that Kazuo Yoshida (the former Jewel Bako chef who improvised more than current chefs) has left Brasserie 360 for the Geisha (sushi portion of the restaurant, presumably).
New York magazine reports: "Geisha, the Japanese-inspired restaurant ... with consulting chef Ripert... supplementing his seafood repertoire with miso-marinated chicken salad in a spring-roll shell, and filet mignon with seven-pepper dipping sauce. Refined fish dishes like grilled shrimp lollipops on sugarcane skewers and Spanish-mackerel tartare still dominate the menu, though, as do signature sushi rolls, prepared by one chef recruited from Hawaii (Jon Maza), and another (Kazuo Yoshida) from Brasserie 360.
33 East 61st Street
The NYT Dining section reports that Geisha doesn't take reservation.
