MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

One Star: High quality cooking

"Nisei" refers to the American-born children of Japanese immigrants, which Chef David Yoshimura is; and the synthesis of that heritage forms the basis of this cuisine. Dining is taken seriously here, where the service team is personable and the chef is especially engaging. The kitchen employs both boldness and subtlety in their cooking, which abounds with personality and technical finesse. The tasting menu is equal parts tradition and invention, where a classic matsutake broth sits in harmony with a wholly original dessert of Okinawan purple sweet potato.
Wine pairings are worthy, while combos of unagi with Barolo are sure to leave a lasting impression.
