Useful information


Sequestered within an office building in the Financial District, this counter is a sensory pleasure. 
The menu combines Edomae sushi with classic kaiseki—and is informed every step of the way with imported Japanese ingredients and local produce. Diners are treated to a breathtaking culinary experience from start to finish.
Chawanmushi is delicate and silky, studded with fava beans and borage flowers. Then comes the impeccably knifed nigiri, interspersed with small composed dishes, all highlighting seasonal delicacies. Imagine the likes of kasugo nigiri, featuring jewel-skinned fillets of young seabream, as well as tiny firefly squid with broccoli rabe, white miso, and mandarin. This meal is a consummate study in ingredient purity. - MICHELIN guide inspectors
