Seasons of “Iron Chef” have come and gone since Chef Masaharu Morimoto first cut the proverbial ribbon on his Chelsea flagship. And even as the pro has vaulted from the kitchen to the echelons of celebrity chefdom, his namesake restaurant is still the seat of modern, dependably exciting Japanese cuisine in New York City. Step through the orange curtains—fluttering with the honk-happy hum of Lincoln Tunnel traffic—into a dining room of ivories and creams glowing in otherworldly light. Holding down the fort and upholding the Morimoto name is Sushi Chef Robby Cook And whether you go the omakase route, ceding your meal to Cook, or order à la carte, finishing your meal with Pastry Chef Manabu Inoue’s desserts guarantees your night will have as much sparkle as sensory pleasure.
