MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Kajitsu is a detailed study in subtlety. Serving shojin cuisine based on the precepts of Buddhism, this traditionally decorated  space is a second-floor sanctuary of peace. Inside, it offers table or counter seating; and service that is as charming as it is earnest.
Such is the skill of this kitchen that you’ll forget in no time about the absence of fish or meat. It’s all about balance, harmony, and simplicity—and allowing the ingredients’ natural flavors to shine, whether that's the miso soup served with burdock root rice or spring roll filled with new harvest potato and fava beans. Your period of contemplation may come to a juddering halt when you find yourself back on Lexington, but for a few moments at least, you’ll feel you connected with nature.
