Every dish was amazing! Tuna with beats, hamachi crudo, shrimp toast, fried chicken, roasted carrots, eggplant - all delicious. So were the cocktails - nori in a cocktail was surprisingly delightful. We will be back!

Be prepared for something different and at times really good. Most of the dishes are very good with a few misses now and again. The menu changes frequently and the dishes that have become mainstays standout ( ask your server). Some ingredients appear in several...More
