Job Details

In 2005, sushi chefs Nick Kim and Jimmy Lau met while working at Masa.
Shuko was born in 2014, and it is where the combined vision of both chefs is executed daily, in the form of an omakase menu.
That vision is one that veers away from the norm of high-end, sushi establishments — both in terms of the chefs' innovative use of ingredients and the hip atmosphere dictated in part by the popular music that pervades the dining room.

Shuko brings exciting energy, innovative technique, and New York state produce to a traditional Japanese cuisine that has pervaded the city’s restaurant scene for some time and is now searching for well-rounded, talented Sommeliers to join our team!

Our Omakase, tasting menu is priced at $270 per person

During 2005, Chefs Nick Kim and Jimmy Lau met while working at Masa in Columbus Circle. In 2012, Chefs Kim and Lau partnered on their first solo project, Neta, to explore their modern interpretation of a traditional sushi counter; Neta opened to rave reviews including two stars from the New York Times in its inaugural year. The following year Chefs Kim and Lau announced their departure from Neta to focus on their own restaurant, Shuko. Shuko popped up in East Hampton during the summer and is now open full-time in Union Square.
