Ukiyo (translated as "the Floating World" - living in the moment, detached from the bothers of life) is a culinary workshop and atelier connected by a tiny walkway to Michelin starred Jewel Bako Sushi, just next door.
The Chef, Marco Prins, is a Dutch native who spent four years at the Chef’s Table at Brooklyn Fare, as well as at Oud Sluis in the Netherlands. Other cooking travels took him to ‘t Zilte in Belgium and Martin Berasategui in San Sebastian.
Marco offers a menu of French cuisine at its base, with Japanese and global inflections. The menu focuses intently on seasonality and ingredients.
The setting is an intimate bar of only 18 counter seats, surrounding Chef Prins and his team in an open kitchen.
