We handcraft gourmet bento boxes daily, focusing on the harmonious balance between taste, health, and beauty.  Please email us your order from our current Bento Menu.

We also cater small and large events that highlight more of our style of Japanese home-style cooking.  Please email us for more information.




We are a catering company that serves Japanese-inspired modern home-style cooking with global influences.  We cater all sized events that include everything from private event gatherings to breakfast and lunch photo-shoots (our specialty), corporate luncheons, trade-shows or conferences, company parties, social events, and wedding dinners.  

We started our business by making our gourmet bento boxes, where we focused on our unique courses and presentation.  As people began to really love the taste and design of our bento boxes, they asked us to bigger scale events. We eventually grew to a full-scale catering company. Our catering menus change at least 2 times a week and are never set menus. We do exactly what we feel a caterer should be doing: catering the menu to your desires! With us, you will rarely have the same meal twice.  We source all our ingredients locally using only the freshest and most seasonal ingredients every week.  Please inquire about our full-service catering capabilities at


As a former long-time fashion design editor in Tokyo, I came to NYC all alone with hopes of starting my own business. Where better than NYC I thought than to succeed or fail quickly and miserably?  There I met my partner who shared my inspirations and Shiki NYC was born in April 2016. We called our company "shiki" which in Japanese translates to four seasons, emphasizing the true seasonality of our food. We really go out of our way to create different menus each week according to what’s in season and what we feel is freshest.

I'm thrilled to bring my background in Japanese cooking (both my mother and grandmother were cooking teachers in Japan) and blend it together with our trained chefs in French, Italian, American and other cuisines to introduce our very own distinct and unique “shiki” style of Japanese cooking. Please enjoy!!!! -Misako
