MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Somehow, this stunning hideaway flies under the radar, as it remains tucked inside the Century Woods complex. Though the city seems to be on its way to becoming a cultural and culinary center, patrons here seem content to keep this restaurant a secret. A clear thread of Japanese subtlety runs through the décor, anchored by a long cedar bar and open kitchen, which churns out surprisingly good food. Signature dishes flaunt modern creativity, often with hinoki wood playing a central role. Highlights include a tranche of pristine white sea bass in a complex duck broth, surrounded by gently wilted greens. A wonderful rendition of black pepper-crab rice foregoes authenticity by adding tart pickled eggplant for a lovely balance of salty, sweet and spicy flavors.
