MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

From first glance, Kura is everything that a personal, well-run and authentic Japanese restaurant should be. Inside, the itamae, who don traditional samue, greet each guest who approaches the L-shaped counter while continuing to prepare the next course. Also find a few tables in the front of the room where groups manage to squeeze in.The menu offers four different levels of omakase, beginning with the likes of braised fava beans; a whole stuffed squid brushed with a sweet-salty reduction; as well as rice topped with nori and ikura. Settle in to the ten-piece nigiri, presented as an array of hyper-seasonal fish dabbed with soy, gently torched or wrapped with cured cherry leaf. Finish with a familiar and delicious cube of chilled tamago and miso soup.
