This “tiny” , “special-occasion” Village Japanese limits itself to “phenomenal omakase” , providing either “top-tier” sushi or traditional kaiseki spreads at a “transporting” bar that takes diners “straight to Tokyo” ; options starting at $135 mean “it ain’t cheap” , but the payoff is a real “wow experience.”

I really liked sushi omakase here. We did not have much interaction with the chef as he had to take care of 3 groups by himself but the quality of sushi was unbeatable! Though I did hope to experience more diverseness in fish texture, it still will be my favorite sushi omakase.

Great quality food, really fresh fish and great service service. I love the vibe. Chef Sang took care of us, Chef Kim was taking care of the middle of the bar. We enjoyed our conversation with Chef Sang, it was just enough he told us about the fish and also what he is putting on top, yuzu pickles, lime zest essence, sea salrs..We loved watching him cutting the fish most which is why having a bar seat is the best for sushi. I had 2 glasses of the junmai daiginjo, crisps, fresh, hint of floral nose but a dry finish, perfection. Smaller thing that some may appreciate is the bathroom products from Aesop and nice and thick towels for your hands, very high-end and elegant. This place is special, it's not the typical sushi bar, so everything together was an experience, it was not a cheap experience, I loved it.
