Useful information


Julia Momosé is the creative force behind this hip corner haven. The name depicts a woodworking technique, and its serene surrounds feature a deluge of natural light. Informed and attentive servers glide through the room—perhaps in tune with moody jazz tunes—delivering a lineup of creative plates. Japanese potato salad with pickled rainbow carrots and smoked ham is a strong opener; while tonkatsu sando with Berkshire pork and buttered shokupan is hearty and substantial. Maitakédon (marinated hen of the woods mushrooms with caramelized onion and onsen tamago) is accompanied by white rice for a fragrant feast.
Teetotalers will treasure the litany of memorable spiritfree sips, like the Remedy with kinmokusei, fennel seed, and artisanal tonic. - MICHELIN guide inspectors
