The ‘Tom’ in ‘Tom Curiosa’ is owner-chef Tsutomu Asai’s nickname. ‘Curiosa’, of course, is Italian for ‘curious’. ‘Curious Tom’ seeks out the most outstanding domestic ingredients, then weaves in Japanese sensibilities. Uncured ham from Gifu Prefecture is a staple here; wrapping a handful of rice in the ham is an idea born of his curiosity. The pasta trio of chilled, ravioli and finisher all align with the Japanese love of noodles.
