MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Few restaurants place such an emphasis on both sukiyaki and shabu-shabu as this classic-meets-contemporary retreat, where premium A5 Wagyu beef reigns supreme. Glass and blonde wood panels lend a cool and airy vibe; while floor tiles, ambient lighting, and custom bamboo blinds make things specially intimate.
Inside, tables are outfitted with a conventional grill for cooking. Your meal may begin with such cold bites as arugula and spinach ohitashi with lobster or a shiso-infused vichyssoise. Diners may then go for the traditional, special, or à la carte sukiyaki, complete with an appetizer, unabashedly rich beef tongue, leafy veggies, and three cuts of Yazawa beef. Truffle-kissed zōsui (or ojiya) is a delicious, subtle, and crowning way to seal this feast.
