MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

One MICHELIN Star: High quality cooking, worth a stop!

Though it’s right by the tony Montecito Inn, this eatery from Chefs/owners Phillip Frankland Lee and Margarita Kallas-Lee is no ordinary omakase spot. The nigiri are not just supremely finessed but also infused with original touches—like the dab of sweet corn “pudding” and sourdough breadcrumbs that coat slices of hamachi. Even traditional pairings become transcendent with his house-fermented soy sauce.
The iconoclastic vibe extends to the beverages, including cocktails, sake, and beer. Despite such originality, this "bar" does indeed adhere strictly to one tradition: a mini counter with seating for just ten to ensure a deeply personalized experience. Your time here is bound to pass in a blissful haze of convivial chatter.
