Chef-owner Ken Sakamoto built this place in 2014 and created a really special atmosphere. It features a dining room on two levels, a counter seating for 4 and a private dining room for up to 6 people.
His cuisine is Italian inspired, featuring Japaneses ingredients. His dishes are highly depended on the season and therefore change frequently. His combination of flavors are sometimes highly unusual. Only a person with a very deep memory bank for flavors can map these combinations. They work astonishingly well. Like pear and pigeon or persimmon and kawahagi.
There is a choice of tea or wine pairing, both of them interesting although the wine pairing is more suitable to fans of funky natural wines.
An excellent meal.
