New Midtown French-Japanese spot Shun opens its doors

A new restaurant serving French-Japanese cuisine has opened its doors in the neighborhood. Called Shun, the new arrival is located at 610 Lexington Ave. in Midtown.

Opened by chef Alain Verzeroli, Shun is located one floor above Verzeroli's other restaurant, the veggie-focused Le Jardinier, which debuted this past spring.

The restaurant offers three and four-course prix fixe menus and an eight-course tasting menu, with appetizers like chilled corn veloute with sea urchin toast. Entrees include lemongrass lobster with leeks, duck a l'orange and grilled wagyu beef with black garlic and braised carrots.

With a five-star rating out of 16 reviews on Yelp so far, Shun has been warmly received by patrons.

Yelper David L. wrote, “This spot is absolutely everything to which more high-end restaurants in New York City should aspire!"
