Once you’ve worked out that the little peach motif actually indicates the entrance, you’ll find yourself taking a seat at what the theatrical world would call a thrust stage. This extraordinarily handsome three-sided counter is wrapped around an open kitchen where the evening’s performance takes place. Each element just works so well here: from the judicious lighting that makes everything feel more sensual, to the music (never too intrusive but far from anodyne) and the delightful team of servers who appear ninja-style from nowhere to be at your side when you need something. Counters are usually such elbow-y affairs, but this one is so wide and everyone is so spread out that you could barely touch your neighbor with a stick. There is no à la carte for you to waste time examining. The multi-course set menu has been expertly honed, practiced and refined. Completed dishes are handed over by the chefs, who may have perfected the bad boy/girl looks of the modern urban cook, but speak with unalloyed pride when they describe what you’re about to eat. Each perfectly formed dish delivers flavors that are refined yet assured, innovative yet expertly balanced; clever yet ridiculously easy to eat.
