MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Serene with warm lighting and clean lines, distinctive creativity is the motto of this sushi-focused operation. Inside, a stunning counter crafted from a piece of live-edge elm, oyster-hued leather chairs and a ceiling of wood slats complete the Japanese-chic look. While the preparation of their nightly omakase might seem like a production line by employing myriad cooking techniques, the kitchen ensures that every bite is memorable. Begin with warm kelp tea, before embarking on a sashimi parade of bluefin slices served with a yuzu-onion-sesame sauce. A soup course may feature a soy foam-miso broth with rice dumplings and duck meatballs. And finally, a top rendition of sushi yields shima aji with daikon and ayu that is torched just enough to blister the skin.
