We love how such a discreet restaurant leads to an Alice in Wonderland of surprises—the wonder, the colors, the whimsy! Chef Hiroyuki Urasawa's tiny jewel box, which seats ten lucky guests, is a place to meditate, find enlightenment and let a celestial kaiseki menu, Urasawa's modus operandi, unfold. Between bite after glorious bite, service never slacks. Nor does Urasawa, whose visions are eternal.
