Located off the beaten path, this mini counter has been a mighty hit since throwing open its doors. Inside, servers move about with quiet efficiency as soft jazz plays in the background. Guests are in good hands here, as Chef/owner Tadakoro and young chef, Tatsuro Tsuchiya take great pleasure in providing a delightful dining experience. Attention to detail is a hallmark, as seen in homemade sauces, prime ingredients, and the fish of the day resting in a wood box. Omakase is the way to go, especially if it includes meaty oysters from British Columbia or succulent scallops from Hokkaido. A mix of sea urchin from California and Hokkaido topped with ikura eggs hits all the right notes; just as golden eye snapper with a thin veil of kombu is an umami thrill. – Michelin Guide
