Things to do in New York – Dining at Iron Chef Morimoto’s

As Tracey mentioned in the last post, she and I, along with a few other WPIC certified Coordinators, travelled to New York last week to attend “The Wedding Party”.

While in New York, Tracey and I make sure to do something interesting so we can see what the city has to offer our wedding clients.  So far, we have done a walking food tour of SoHo and Greenwich Village, taken a horse-drawn carriage ride through Central Park, gone to see Wicked on Broadway, experienced what The Plaza Hotel has to offer wedding clients and eaten at some truly incredible restaurants.  On this whirlwind trip to New York City, we decided to dine at Iron Chef Morimoto’s restaurant, Morimoto.  It is located in the Chelsea Market.

We booked our reservation a month early and were actually able to secure a spot for 8pm on a Saturday!  The restaurant was packed, but the staff were wonderful and attentive.

We started with drinks at the bar downstairs and before we could finish them we were taken to our seats.  The hostess came with a tray to carry our drinks, we expected to have to wait a lot longer, so this was wonderful!

This is where we sat with an awesome view of the open kitchen. Photo source:

Tracey and I like to order the Chef’s Tasting Menu whenever possible and this is what we did.

We started with Morimoto's signature dish: Toro Tartar

Sashimi topped with mushrooms

How pretty is this? Vegetable crudite with a warm anchovy dipping sauce. Since I don't eat pork, they made me a skewer of tempura lobster!

Cooked oyster with fois gras

An assortment of sushi


For the intermezzo (palate cleanser), house-made gingerale!

For the main: Morimoto's surf & turf. Lobster tail with an indian masala sauce, lobster claw and marinated steak (so good!)

And to finish, Sweet Potato Pots de Creme!

 Absolutely everything was fantastic, but I could have ordered three of the Toro Tartars!  No wonder that is his signature dish!


  1. Love Chef Morimoto! Damn….even the gingerale looks amazing! Lucky ladies!
