In typical Japanese fashion, Suzuki nails minimalist chic. The simple elegance doesn’t end with its high design. Also noticeably uncluttered is the dining room, so if you’re looking for a “scene,” venture elsewhere. The carte here spins to the season and is a study in fine-dining. Artful creations include a vegetarian variety, but those in the know may pass on that menu, order Chef Takashi Yamamoto's version of kaiseki and let him show off his skills. Wanmori impresses with its exceptional consommé and delicate dumpling; top-quality sashimi is nicely plated; and baby ayu tempura elevates the Saikyo miso-marinated grilled rainbow trout. Kurobuta pork belly served Yamato-style with eggplant and red paprika is delicious despite its less-than-dazzling appearance.
