Talented jazz musicians do their thing in one space, while the equally talented chef Shotaro "Sho" Kamio does his Japanese food in a separate room, from tempura veal sweetbreads to beef brisket braised in miso and Cabernet with a miso-bordelaise sauce. There are also sashimi platters, classic nigiri choices, and Americanized sushi rolls like spicy dragon. The big, handsome restaurant harbors stylish booths, a sushi bar, small tables, a tatami room, a mezzanine lounge,
and a bar. When funds are tight, you can order from the club-lounge menu in the bar, which has California rolls, spicy shrimp tempura, and burgers.
