With O Ya, his revered Chinatown restaurant, Chef Tim Kushman proves he’s a chef with many tricks up his sleeve. From fried Kumamoto oysters to flavor-packed yellowtail, this modern Japanese menu may borrow ideas from Cushman’s world travels (he spent years researching concepts for Chicago’s Lettuce Entertain You group), but his innovative fare is grounded in clean, refreshing, and precise flavor.
