Bon Yagi, whose mini-empire of Japanese restaurants includes Sakagura, Decibel, Shabu-Tatsu, and numerous other places, is looking to open another, he tells us: Curry-ya, a Japanese curry concept to be located next to his Rai Rai Ken in the East Village. “It’s a very popular concept in Japan,” he says. “But nobody has ever done it here.” Wait! What about Cheap Eats favorite Go! Go! Curry? Yagi conceded that Go! does a bustling business in the Times Square area but suggested that his version will be more high-minded, catering to women and leisurely types. “There will be wine, ambience, and salads. It will be very Japanese and very refined.” Curry-ya is slated to open in February.
