Most likely the best Kaiseki restaurant in Kanazawa. Especially in the snow crab (Kano-gani) season. If you have your timing right, you come during the very short reason for the female snow crab (Kobako-gani), called "flavour box" in Japanese for its wonderful taste. And if you are really lucky, Takuya Kataori, the Chef/Owner picked up some Matsutake from Suzu.
Kataori-san kills the Kobako-gani right in front of you and the gently grills the legs on the Binchōtan grill. He feels when it is perfectly done. he then cuts into half and gives it to you. The leg is just warm but still raw and incredibly delicious.
This place only opened in 2019 and it is becoming very fast famous and hard to book. So be prepared to book way in the advance.
