Heading 6
From an elegant dining, or casual take-out, to a business lunch catering,
Join us at NIPPON! 
The best of "Edo-Mae" Tokyo style and
the oldest Japanese restaurant in Manhattan! 















The first dinner we prepared, as we await for the completion of our restaurant remodeling, was a 100th day celebration dinner for a baby boy “Arito.”

This family ceremony is called Okui-zome, meaning “the first meal,” wishing the new born to always have enough food.


One day, when Arito-kun grows up, we will tell him the story of the spring of 2020, how New York fought the battle against COVID-19, how everyone collaborated,  and cared for each other.


From the bottom of our heart, we look forward to the day we can open our door and welcome you in a renewed dining room.


For now, with at most consideration for the safety and security of our valuable guests and staff, we will start take-out and delivery with limited menu on April 13.
