A gentle rock waterfall greats patrons as they enter Pacific Echo, a newly opened outpost on West 56th Street that serves up Neo-style Sushi and French influenced Asian dishes. Upon entering, patrons are whisked away to a serenity steps away from bustling mid-town Manhattan.
Whicker lamps hang freely over the tables in the lower level of this two story space, and a hip vibe is created through ambient music and a sleekly dressed wait staff. A full bar awaits guests towards the back of the main dining room, where a small but carefully chosen sake list and an array of specialty drinks make an appearance.
Executive Chef Anan Tiwadom, a native of Malaysia, brings to this kitchen his experience working at the Four Seasons Hotel in Singapore. The sushi is made and prepared in a contemporary style, but different types of sauces accompany the fish, rather than the same old soy sauce found at most Japanese restaurants in town. Emphasis is placed on taste, smell, texture, and visual senses, as Chef Tiwadom melts down the different Asian flavors with French culinary artistry. It is clearly evident why the Chef was awarded the South East Asian award for Visual presentation.
Perfect for the power lunch set due to its close proximity to many top law firms and record labels, Pacific Echo can also claim its stake as a romantic spot, as the lights are turned down low during dinner time, and a faint candle flickers on each table.
