This Japanese restaurant marries the culinary zeitgeists of East and West, applying Japanese techniques to locavore ingredients. Two chefs, one classically trained and the other more experimental, collaborate on the menu of sushi, sashimi, appetizers and mains, offering some unexpected dishes like shrimp tempura with tortilla and foie gras rice, in addition to standbys like eggplant with garlic sauce and shrimp tempura rolls.
