Hiro Sone and Lissa Doumani bring Japonesque sensibilities to this stylish and intimate dining room in the St. Regis Hotel. The Michelin-starred menu emphasizes raw—sashimi, crudo, tartare, carpaccio—and southern France: grilled duck breast with liver crostini, duck confit, and toasted farro. Everything is exquisitely prepared and presented. The bar features limited-edition sakes and small-lot wines, as well as the signature "Hirotini," made with sake and cucumber-infused vodka.
