MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

A single door, manned by a sharply suited host, marks the entrance to this culinary haven that extends well beyond its diminutive name. The lounge is ideal for a bit of bubbly, after which guests may sette into a perch at the counter, set around the chef's stainless steel workspace that literally makes the world a stage.

The team is unabashedly passionate, turning out a menu that's complete with whimsy. There are those famous liquid olives, but look to the chalkboard for such special snacks as soy chicharrón with wakasabi (basically guacamole with fresh wasabi); and Wagyu topped with pearls of caviar as well as petals of a sunflower. Desserts, like a fried hojicha donut and cherry pâte de fruit atop miso "sable," make for a delightfully unorthodox finale.
