Chef Masa was in Tribeca last night to make the case for a liquor license at his upcoming restaurant Tetsu. Tribeca Citizen has been all over this opening from the beginning, and reports back on the meeting details: The spot, at 78 Leonard, will have 124 seats spread out over three floors (à la carte on the ground floor, a lounge on the mezzanine, and omakase menus in the cellar) and is tentatively scheduled to open around Thanksgiving. Masa also brought along a very detailed sample menu that lists dishes like sizzling razor clam with seabeans ($34) , grilled bluefin tuna steak ($38), corn risotto with uni ($48, or $68 with summer truffles), and something called “nothing special just squid legs” ($16).
