Masaharu Morimoto's doing everything he can to make you forget about Tribeca Canvas: The Bisutoro space looks completely different, with murals painted by street artist Charlie Doves, mid-century retro chairs, and exposed brick walls. The food's still American with an Asian accent, but Morimoto's swapping Kurobuta corn dogs and brownie sundaes for dishes like uni carbonara, tofu steak, and tempura lettuce wraps. Plus: The beverage program focuses on Japanese whiskies, so that can't suck. Yesterday was opening day, and the restaurant's serving dinner seven nights a week. Take a look at the space, a few of the dishes, and the menu, straight ahead.
