Useful information


Fans of this well-regarded poke bowl operation will be happy enough at lunch, but the owners of the spot have a lot more in mind for the rest of us, especially the after-work crowd of FiDi. The menu offers a little bit of everything in an intimate, sleek space decked out with light oak tables, moody spotlights, and vibrant greenery lining the side of the room.
Tempura and yakitori are the strong suits here: maitake mushrooms and chrysanthemum leaves arrive lightly battered and impressively grease-less, while skewers of chicken skin and chicken wings are carefully grilled until finely charred and appropriately tender. Uni lovers will want to try the risotto, which resembles a bowl of warm porridge, finished with finely minced chives and shiso. - MICHELIN guide inspectors
