By virtue of its petite size (eight patrons max) and strict seating times (twice per night at 6 and 9:30), the Japanese gem, NAOE, will forever remain intimate and original. And by virtue of it's price ($160 per person), it will forever require deep pockets; but this place is well worth a bit of credit card debt. The all-inclusive menu changes daily, based on the day's best and freshest seafood, but always includes a Bento Box, soup, nigirizushi, and dessert. Every visit
ushers in a new exploration of the senses. Chef Kevin Cory prepares the gastronomic adventure a few feet from his patrons, using only the best ingredients and showcasing family treasures, like the renowned products of his centuries' old family shoyu (soy sauce) brewery and sake brewery. From start to finish, you'll be transported to Japan through the stellar service, the tastes of bizarre sea creatures and the smoothness of spectacular sakes.
