Time Out says

After closing Ani in April, Small Bar and Arami owner Ty Fujimura teamed up with former Schwa chef Brian Fisher to open Entente. The concept is “casual fine dining,” where you choose from several dishes to create a tasting menu as long or as short as you’d like (we went with six dishes plus dessert and were satisfied). The dishes on offer are constantly changing, but on our visit standouts included a place of tender duck breast served with smoked blackberries, dollops of miso yogurt, dried miso yogurt chips and salted and shaved cucumber. We also loved the kale salad, a large slice of grilled Napa cabbage dressed with crunchy noodles, sunflower seeds and lemony dressing made from Thai herbs. You’ll want to mop it all up with your shreds of kale.
