Fodor's Expert Review Al-ché-cciano

$$$$ Tsuruoka and Dewa-Sanzan Italian

Acclaimed executive chef and owner Okuda Masayuki prepares Italian dishes that are totally original and unique and reflect the region. The style of Italian comes with a commitment to the freshest ingredients, including the produce, fish, and meat. The menu varies, but everything is reliably great. The aim here is to bring out all natural flavors and aromas of Shonai foods by using few condiments, to create a perfectly combined dish where delicate flavors are more important than heavy sauces or big portions. It's often a good idea to make reservations for dinner and that also lets you confirm that they are open since they do keep a have a sporadic schedule in winter.
