Tetsu is a modern Japanese robatayaki located in the heart of TriBeCa. We're a neighborhood restaurant,
the boisterous sibling to the world famous Masa. We're not trying to be Masa -- we are Tetsu.
Housed in a landmarked building from the 1860s, the interior of Tetsu, “iron” in Japanese, pays homage to its historic cast iron structure. Designed by Chef Masa, a suspended mezzanine overlooks the open kitchen and the focal point of the restaurant is an 18-seat counter made from a single Bubinga wood tree. Recycled oil drums are used as host stands and the 8-foot tall flower pot is fashioned from a reclaimed water pipe.
