A meal here starts with plump Hokkaido scallops smothered with a rich, nutty sesame paste, followed by a parade of nigiri featuring expertly sliced seafood. In fact, everything tastes spectacular and doesn’t leave an unwanted fishy taste. The lightly seared, pinkish salmon; the deep-red tuna belly; and the lightly grilled fish amadai are slicked with soy sauce and served with freshly grated wasabi. There’s a break between courses in the form of vinegar-infused seaweed as a palate cleanser and a deep-fried crab meat croquette with the most tender, sweet filling. The meal ends with a simple sweet-and-tangy strawberry espuma.
