Hot NYC and Hamptons Japanese Restaurant, Kissaki, to Open New Location in Manhasset this October

When Kissaki went out to Water Mill from New York City to open its first location on Long Island back in 2020 (yes in the middle of the pandemic) the Japanese restaurant thrived when others faltered by emphasizing fresh fish caught locally and imported directly from Japan. They are now planning a new location in Manhasset to open on October 11th.

Kissaki focuses on omakase style dining where the sushi chef picks the sushi for you instead of ordering off a menu.

Owner Garry Kanfer, who says he is a “sushi addict,” also founded Big Drop, a digital marketing agency in Manhattan. It was Kanfer who spearheaded the transformation of Kissaki to takeout when Covid hit, donating meals to the city’s frontline healthcare professionals. Kanfer hired Chef Edgar Valerio to design and execute the menu at Kissaki.

The restaurant already has locations on Bowery and the Upper West Side in Manhattan in addition to Water Mill and Greenwich, CT. The Manhasset location at 411 Plandome Road will go into the spot that was once Misaki Japanese restaurant.

The 3,500-square-foot restaurant will have seating for 60 people at the sushi bar and in the dining room.

A representative of the restaurants described the offerings at Kissaki saying diners can enjoy Kampachi Carpaccio, Shishito Peppers and Edamame in addition to Wagyu Crispy Rice, Chicken Karaage, Tuna Stuffed Avocado and Spicy King Crab. Maki includes a Shrimp Tempura Roll, Salmon Maki and Ebi Hamachi Futomaki. Entrees feature Wagyu Fried Rice, Uni Pasta, Spaghetti Izakaya Style and Truffle Rice Donabe. They will serve Matcha Tiramisu for dessert.
