THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Kamogawa Restaurant Review: One of the citys most elegant restaurants by any measure, Kamogawa is favored by visiting Japanese businessmen. The draw here is the pure, simple classicism of Japanese food at its finest. The keiseki banquet takes guests through the most authentic fare (three days notice, please), and on a smaller scale, the omakase dinner ranges through assorted appetizer-size dishes. Dont pass up a chance to taste the tempura-style soft-shell crab, the tataki of beef (sliced thin, seared very rare and served cold) with ponzu sauce; or any sushi and sashimi. Duck, too, is very good. The nabe (a sort of bouillabaisse) needs to be ordered for two or more but is a very special experience. The wine list is constantly being expanded, but our sip of choice is one of the fine sakés, preferably served chilled. Private tatami rooms, where you must doff your shoes before entering, make a memorable dining experience.
