Cuisine: Modern Japanese

This peaceful stark space makes an ideal backdrop for these inspired dishes dreamt up by chefs that have apprenticed under Nobu Matsuhisa. You won't find Nobu's dishes here, but you will find wasabi oyster tempura with balsamic sauce and green tea creme brulees.

Favorite Dish: Good sake - Nihon Sakari

Try their inventive drinks like the Sampaguita - a cocktail infused with the scent of the Pilipino National flower.

Gindara with Foie Gras - The grilled codfish is buttery in texture. Almost as rich as the foie gras its paired with.
