Mizuna was chef/owner Frank Bonanno's first restaurant. Impeccably serviced by a thoroughly professional floor staff, Mizuna is a comfortable neighborhood spot that draws crowds (and these days, cooks) from across the country, all coming to taste the first, best expression of Bonanno's ingredient obsessions, singular talent and hard work. From eternal classics like the lobster mac-and-cheese to variation after variation on foie gras, duck and salmon to cream-filled beignets, the plates coming out of Mizuna's kitchen never fail to satisfy.
