Masayoshi Takayama creates the ultimate in intimate eating experiences. For those who can swallow the price tag, this temple of solitude and expression is a must and guests will be duly rewarded. Utilizing the taste concepts of shibui and umami, Masa composes dishes featuring the simplicity of each ingredient while maintaining their basic essences. Fresh and exotic seafood is flown in daily from Japan. And perhaps the best news of all—Masa himself is here doing the cooking.
