Seasonal food

  • 肉

Japanese cuisine focuses on meticulously bringing out the natural flavors of every ingredient while giving respectful consideration to what foods are in season.
From fresh seafood from Noto, Ishikawa Prefecture to Katsube beef from Japanese Black cattle (also known as "the elusive kuroge-wagyu"), we carefully select only the freshest in-season ingredients, all of which are cultivated with love and care.
We also garnish our meals with seasonal flowers and utensils that accentuate the dish they are served with as a way of enhancing both the food and atmosphere of our restaurant.
