Such great food. I had the Chow Noodles (vegetarian), so tasty. My friends got meat dishes, I can't recall the exact ones but all were happy. The wine was perfectly paired. We heard they were ex-Per Se / Thomas Keller folks running this and it was pretty obvious when we were there. Prices were reasonable and service was top notch. Can't wait to go again!
May I start saying I might have found my new favorite Hawaiian restaurant in NYC? That is right, don't take it from me just go and experience yourself (you will thank me later! =] ). If you like raw tuna and pork belly, you're going to like Noreetuh. If you like monkfish liver and uni, you're going to love it. The menu ranges from the mildly adventurous (a corned beef tongue "musubi," basically a sushi handroll) to the "yes, your picky friend will eat this" (garlic shrimp over rice). Cute date place, a spot worth trying if you like interesting food at a non-outrageous price. Also, don't miss the wine list, which the restaurant takes pretty seriously -  no Tiki drinks here (not complaining!!). Noreetuh has plenty of dishes for a successful first visit (even for mildly picky eaters). Dinner will be particularly fun for wine lovers (like myself) because of its overachieving list of German rieslings, Burgundies in both colors, Champagnes and more far-flung treats. Better still, the prices are low; just by sticking to your budget, you can drink at a higher level than usual. Sounds like a winner in my books Ok, lets get to the food - APPETIZERS *Corned Beef Tongue Musubi: essentially a flat sushi handroll with Spam as the filling, is a popular dish in Hawaii. Noreetuh swaps the Spam for corned beef tongue, with some peanuts and a green cilantro sauce thrown in. Adventurous as it sounds, it's actually a pretty simple dish. Get one as a starter snack. *Tuna Poke: Raw cubes of tuna, tartare-style, with Macadamia nuts and seaweed salad. You want this on your table. MAIN *Pork Belly: Braised in pineapple with some greens and yams, you want this very tender pork belly. It is absolutely delicious!! *Mentaiko Spaghetti: A creamy pasta with fish roe and smoked butterfish, almost like a seafood carbonara. A must-have. Do yourself a favor and add this place to your "bucket list" :)
I really wanted to enjoy Noreetuh, but it was a dud for me across the board.  I'll list out some thoughts below: - Service:  I don't know what was going on the night we went, but the service was pretty poor.  We were seated without a menu, and then waited almost 10min for someone to stop by.  Then the drinks took forever, so we had already started our meal before our drinks arrived. Also, we were recommended a dish to order, and then halfway through the meal we were told they no longer offer it, so we had to quickly pick something else.   I will say our Waittress was very nice about it and recognized the service was extremely slow/poor that night, so she comped us a dessert, but YIKES. - Musubi (Chef's pick) -- 2 of them had no flavor whatsoever (I believe they were the pork & corned beef).  The Spam was the best out of the 3, but even then I found it pretty basic.  Definitely do not recommend anyone order this, and if you must get something, stick to the order of Spam.   - Tuna Poke -- this was OK.  Nothing mind blowing, and for $22 and a handful of poke, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't recommend or get this again.   - Braised Pork Belly -- This was easily the best dish of the night (and the only good one).  Juicy & delicious pork, with tasty polenta spread.  I recommend this for sure. - Fried Chicken (6 pieces) -- This was terrible.  The fried batter was almost bitter?  The chicken itself was pretty small, as 2 out of the 6 pieces were no bigger than a couple inches.  I will give them credit that at least it was served hot, but wow this was really not good or worth the price ($30).  Everyone at the table agreed too, so this was not a controversial opinion.  Further, there was no sauces offered, so it was basically just eating fried chicken bare.  I think maybe a BBQ sauce or something would've helped cover the fried batter.   - Dessert -- This was actually really good (and not just because it was comped).  I  forget what it was, but it had a lot of whip cream & some salted caramel.   In summary, this was a shockingly disappointing meal across the board.  Bad/slow service, small portions of flavorless food (except for the Pork Belly).  I hate to be a troll, but I definitely do not recommend based off my experience there.
