Despite a clandestine vibe and handful of seats, this dining room buzzes with diners and locals in-the-know. Low lighting creates a sultry aura and courteous servers attend to the pristine counter with ease.
The space feels especially intimate and private. Plush leather seats, a gleaming kitchen, and top fittings hint at a classic and celebratory meal. The kaiseki follows a distinct format by staring with a seasonal small plate, followed by soup, a grilled dish, and fried preparation. Sushi, like aged squid with bottarga, is an added bonus. Kick off with sakizuke, like broccoli rabe and fried taro with seared Long Island unagi. Then indulge in a flavorful owan, soup course, with Alaskan king crab; tailed by yakimono of duck with a frothy apple cream.
