Founded by three alums of trendsetting Matsuhisa, Wa offers a more personalized experience with high-quality ingredients and intriguing Japanese cooking. Particularly enticing are dishes enhanced with French-inspired sauces. For instance, the Chilean sea bass is layered with foie gras and bathed in a port reduction, while the Santa Barbara prawns are dosed with a perfect beurre blanc prepared on a rickety range behind the sushi bar. Wa's hillside location allows for seductive city views from a small handful of tables dressed up with linen and candles.
