Fodor's Review

Chef Corey Lee's three-Michelin-star fine-dining mecca is a must-stop for those who hop from city to city, collecting memorable meals. Each of the tasting menu's 15-plus courses is impossibly meticulous, a marvel of textures and flavors. Lee, formerly of French Laundry, handles Asian ingredients—a thousand-year-old quail egg, xiao long bao dumplings, and sea cucumber—with a Western touch. You may find dishes like Hokkaido sea cucumber stuffed with lobster, pork belly, eggplant, fermented pepper or eel. An extremely professional staff is behind the quick pacing and on-point wine pairings. Bare-wood tables and a minimalistic interior guarantees concentration on the plate. The tasting menu is mandatory.
