THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED bushi-tei Restaurant Review

: French and Japanese flavors are fused at bushi-tei, marking a creative duality evident even in the small room’s elegant, rustic-modern décor. The 16-seat communal table is split lengthwise into contrasting halves of wood and glass. Around it stand a few white-topped tables; above, a petite mezzanine screened with frosted glass provides elevated dining for a private few. Rich, eclectic dishes simultaneously soothe, surprise and delight. A simple tataki of Hawaiian albacore belies a spectrum of bold flavors and memorably tender fish. Ramen is a messy mash of handmade egg noodles, cauliflower sautéed in brown butter and Swiss chard, with a killer ingredient in hatcho miso --- a juicy, silky miso aged for “three winters” in Okazaki, Japan. Kabocha squash and matcha mocha, served in a sweet, warm coconut and tapioca broth, is one of the better desserts in the city. The wine list features old-world and domestic wines as well as good sakés by the (wine) glass. Specially-filtered, ph-balanced water is a house feature.
