I really enjoy the mood here, as it feels so authentically Japanese. You can lose yourself for an hour at lunch and slip into a different world.
AAA Inspector Notes
Sublime and simple décor makes use of the large space, and beautifully grained blond wood is everywhere the eye looks. The top-shelf sushi restaurant serves the finest quality fresh fish, which is well cut and tender. It's typical that some fish on the list of available options are not seen at most other restaurants in the city. Daily specials are printed on a one-page sheet handed to each guest, and various omakase prix-fixe menu options are available. As is customary in Japan, this restaurant is unique as there is no tipping, and gratuities are not accepted, with the servers being fully compensated by their salaries.
