If humans are mostly made of water, and fish traditionally inhabit water, fish should naturally occur in the human body. Fix this gap in nature’s logic with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of sushi and Asian fusion fare at Neo World Bistro & Sushi Bar in Mount Kisco.
Helmed by acclaimed Head Chef and Indonesian native Sianto Njotoatmodjo, Neo World Bistro's kitchen culls culinary traditions from across the globe to add new exciting fusions and fresh imbuements to its Asiatic menu. Set the continent-crossing tone from the start by warming up with the monkfish risotto roll, piously pan-fried morsels of monkfish swaddled in a shiitake risotto and delicately dressed in a robe of Vietnamese rice paper and pomegranate sauce ($8.95). Next, tour tastes from both ends of the north Pacific by sharing plates of homemade bibimbap ($18.95+) and New Zealand rack of lamb ($21.95), exchanging spoonfuls of crispy Korean fried rice and seafood bouillabaisse for forkfuls of grilled, lemon-grass marinated meat and potatoes mashed by Russell Crowe. The udon crawfish New Orleans étouffée combines eastern noodles with fiery western-gulf flavors to forge an appetizing spice alliance ($12.95), trumped only by the triumvirate of spicy tuna, salmon, and crab dominating the house special King of Kings roll ($14.95).
Bright-green walls, dark-chocolate leather seating, and dim, ambient lighting balance moods to suit the sumptuous synthesis of Neo World Bistro's cuisine. Committed to creating a serene space dedicated to adventurous eats and soft-palate satisfaction, Chef Njotoatmodjo gladly takes requests for off-menu, ancestral fare from his homeland, and the friendly, attentive serving staff will try to meet any request, except for those beginning with "I dare you to…"
Neo World Bistro and Sushi Bar
Lauded by the New York Times for a "vision that stretches far beyond Asia," Neo World Bistro and Sushi Bar forges new cuisine out of Eastern and Western influences. Indonesian-born head chef Sianto Njotoatmodjo borrows liberally from Italian, French, and Indian culinary traditions, turning out new takes on classics including seafood risotto, chicken in teriyaki beurre blanc, and spicy tuna with avocado and mango in paratha-style bread. Decked out in shades of light green and chocolate brown, the sleek dining room lies adjacent to the sushi bar where specialty rolls are named for positive and inspiring feelings such as "hope," "humble," and "hey, this is tasty sushi."
