Critic’s Notes

While the maki at this handsome haunt is plenty tasty, you’d be wise to focus instead on the small bites, such as minced tuna tartare dotted with chives and caviar, rich kabocha nigiri, and flavorful gifts from the robata grill. The mochi are not made in-house, but have them anyway. Trust your server to help you navigate the expansive sake list.
