What does Ko mean?
Son of.

What kind of cuisine is it?
While we are strongly guided by the Japanese kaiseki tradition, we are also influenced by seasonality, the innovation of our mentors and peers, food memories, and the breadth of cuisine available in the melting pot of New York City. We strive to make food that is unexpected but extraordinarily delicious.

What’s on the menu?
For lunch and dinner, we serve a tasting menu. The menu is currently $195 per person, and reservations are required.

What is the difference between kitchen counter, tables, and bar?
The tasting menu is served at the kitchen counter that wraps around an open kitchen as well as at the tables. The counter accommodates parties of 1 to 4 guests while the tables seat parties of 4 to 6. Counter and table reservations are available through OpenTable.

Additionally, we offer an abbreviated menu at our 6-seat bar. The bar menu is currently $75 for five courses and $90 for six courses. The bar is available for walk-ins only.

Can I bring my young child to dine?
Due to the unique configuration of the counter around the kitchen and the restricted number of chairs, we require that each guest participate in the menu. While we have had younger diners enjoy the full menu, we also understand that the average duration of the meal (at least 2.5 hours) and the amount of food is not for most children.
