This place is such a gem. We came here on a whim and were lucky enough to get a table seated in the outside area. The portions were small, the prices were on the high end but the quality of the food did not disappoint. We ordered some of the skewers, the gyoza, the homemade tofu, chizu tori katsu and ended with the panna cotta.

My favorite restaurant in the city. It's like Chez Panisse and a dope chef-driven izakaya in Tokyo had a baby. And somehow that baby became a legendary carpenter who built him/herself the most beautiful wooden structure/courtyard around. It's a weak metaphor, but the food is strong. Love the duck and chrysanthemum salad. Sashimi is always top notch. I love the parfaits when they're on the menu. Umeshu is so good. The sakes are wonderful. Tsukune is worth an order. Great for dates,...read full review

Definitely a little pricey but the food was absolutely delicious. Very rich in flavor with quality ingredients. Skewers were grilled to perfection and well seasoned. Did not keep track of what I was eating but everything was delicious and had great textures #口感 Outdoor curb seating arrangement felt a bit shoddy (carts as seats and flimsy covers which shook with wind) but service was fantastic.
