This 12-seat Japanese restaurant spearheaded by Paul Qui, James Beard Foundation Award provides customers with a multi-course omakase experience fusing Tokyo-style sushi and Kyoto-style kaiseki into a heightened, seasonal culinary offering. Minimalist installation crafted from simple materials: burned cedar panels, redwood countertops, hand crafted blue plaster walls and delicate copper accents enable the customer to maintain a pure, driven focus on the soft texture and aroma of the food being prepared.
