Katsuhama Opening Second Location


When I crave a little Japanese curry rice with fried meat cutlets I usually hit up Go Go Curry (on 38th btw. 7+8th) or Yagura (on 41st btw. Mad+5th), but for a nice sit down splurge Katsu-hama is the jam (on 47th btw. Mad+5th.) which makes this news kind of exciting…  Matsuya Foods, the company that owns Menchanko Tei and Katsu-hama, is turning Onigashmia (the Japanese spot connected to the Menchanko Tei on 55th btw. 5+6th) into a second branch of Katsuhama.  I never tried Onigashima, so I don’t know if this is an upgrade or downgrade… all I do know is it’s good news for any tonkatsu fans working in the northern part of Midtown. They’re hoping to have the location up and running by the end of the month.


  • Noooooooooooooooooooooo! While Katsuhama is the bomb-digs, Onigashima was the portion of the Matsuya Foods family that focused on fresh fish – sashimi & sushi. What the heck!!! It was bad enough when they closed ONY (their noodle shop in the West Village) a while back, the ORIGINAL ramen shop, but now Onigashima?! You already HAVE a katsuhama!!! Do you really need TWO if it means we have to give up super fresh sashimi?! I call shenanigans!!!

  • Where’s the other Katsushama? I’d check them out to see if they change my opinion of japanese food :)

  • I, sadly, never got to go to Onigashima. I do, however, effing LOVE Katsuhama. Having one closer to my office will be lovely.

  • Is Shivery McPickles in some way related to Rudy McBagel?

  • It’s the lovechild of RudyMcBagel and NoPickles
