Terrific restaurant. Serene, serious, and seriously delicious. As a fine dining restaurant it is easily in the top five in Los Angeles - the others being Melisse, Providence, and Urasawa. (okay, that's four, but that's my top tier). The food is a bit of contemporary european, Cal-French and of course, Japanese. The sommelier is skilled and charming, his selections all interesting. I've been three times - and each return visit confirmed my experience of the first - terrific. The only downside is no valet parking. But as downside it's a pretty minor issue. The odd location actually heightens the experience of feeling different, off the beaten path. No sign out front either. Not exactly a speakeasy, but it has some element of that (of course you just walk in the door). Lovely preperation, artful displays on the dish, and not just interesting choices (it sounds like it would taste good) - but it does taste good. This isn't a place that just appeals to the left-brain, but the right brain too. Love this place.
