MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

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

Named for Chef Soichi Kadoya, this intimate Japanese restaurant has made a name for itself in University Heights. There are two omakase options, as well as several à la carte items. The chef may be chatting up diners, but make no mistake—this food shows serious focus. Sushi leans straightforward, but it flaunts a great deal of skill. Hokkaido pike mackerel is balanced by ginger and scallion, while kampachi delivers clean and simple flavors. Spanish bluefin tuna has a slight tang, while fatty tuna is luscious. Sea bass, marinated with two kinds of miso, is broiled and caramelized; and nigiri highlights trigger fish topped with a sliver of its creamy liver. An aromatic shirumono (fish soup) is the perfect transition before homemade green tea ice cream.
