Zuma co-founder and creator Rainer Becker brings his signature modern Japanese cuisine to Madison Avenue in a breathtaking bi-level beauty designed by Noriyoshi Muramatsu of Studio Glitt. The city’s first location is comprised of three unique kitchens, each of which highlight Zuma’s renowned flavors and presentation through a variety of mediums. Officially open to the public as of last week, this one’s not to be missed. Attaché favorites include gyuhire sumibiyaki karami, a spicy beef tenderloin with sesame, red chili, and sweet soy, and buta-bara yuzu miso, a Kurobuta pork belly skewer with yuzu mustard mayo. Contact your Attaché for reservations and more menu picks.
