Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

If your rendezvous is an intimate one, Kai (Japanese for “gathering”) is a good place for it. The minimal, bamboo-accented design makes the tight quarters bearable; a hushed atmosphere allows for quiet conversation and concentration on the food. Delicate Japanese fare—mushroom ohitashi simmered in dashi broth and served with bonito flakes, or gorgeously marbled Wagyu—is artfully presented on slate slabs. Expect a palate-titillating experience, if not a filling one: Tidy portions mean you may need to splurge on several courses.
