Upper East Siders, meet the new kid on the block. Masa Takayama’s latest outpost has officially opened its doors in the Madison Avenue Gagosian Gallery space with 82 seats and a killer open kitchen view. Catch the chefs in action and brace for 20 courses of grilling, braising, stewing, frying, and steaming wonder with sashimi interims served on blocks of frozen glass. Kappo Masa is currently serving dinner (tasting menu and à la carte) and will roll out lunch in the near future (hello, bento box). Contact your Attaché for menu highlights and reservations.
