Named after the white charcoal used to smoke its French-Japanese tapas, Le Binchotan is a chic eatery dishing out small plates, large plates, and skewered items licked by the grill. Don't be fooled by the large mirror at the back of the restaurant, the space is small and only seats 38.
Ingredients are flown in from Japan to produce dishes like the Myoban uni ($23), a corn mousse topped with long-spiked uni that reaches the restaurant mere hours before ending up on your plate. Other highlights include shaven foie gras ($21) made to look like wood chips served with daikon and dashi gelée, single-stick skewers of wagyu striploin ($15), and Iberico pork jowl ($35).
