Japanese restaurants are always such a wonderful experience.  The otaku culture finds  a wonderful outlet in creative cuisine.  The plating alone makes one anticipate and salivate for each dish, casting an eye towards the kitchen door.

Since 2006, one can find the small restaurant Kyotofu just a few blocks off time square.  A savior when venturing in the theatre district, with its endless rows of xeroxed fare, the exquisitely designed eatery specializes in small plates and variety of uhmm-inducing desserts.  The sweets are guilt -free, being delicious and light at the same time!  They also create perfect macaroons and others sweets to take home.  The chocolate cupcakes can create a serious addiction,while the heart shaped ones can make lovely gift a in their elegant packaging.
