Asiate at the Mandarin Oriental New York

The springtime arrival of the delicate, ephemeral cherry blossoms is a beloved event throughout Japan. For our annual homage to this breathtaking phenomenon, chef Toni Robertson and wine director Annie Turso of Asiate at the Mandarin Oriental New York have crafted a menu as exquisite as the magnificent blossoms themselves.
