Owner Maiko Kyogoku, who worked for contemporary artist Takashi Murakami, opened a stylish space in Noho for chef Emily Yuen’s innovative plates, many of which draw from Kyogoku’s family recipes. Yuen adds a modern twist on classics with her bento bowl teeming with soy beef brisket and the chicken karaage dusted with Moroccan spices. Bessou lives up to its name, which loosely translates from Japanese as ‘second home.’
