A brick archway leading to a courtyard and vine-covered trellis may be the entrance, but most passersby would probably prefer to jump right through those sidewalk windows into the bright open kitchen. Inside, the skylit dining room features plush dove-grey carpets, high-backed banquettes, and exceptionally attentive service. Dark tables are laden with bespoke everything, from the opening chawan mushi 's porcelain lid right down to the tiered blackwood box of mignardises. The crowd is pretty, international, and rife with gourmands who add a note of seriousness to dining here. A full tour of the kitchen's talent is best explored through the tasting menu, where Korean, Chinese, Japanese, and French influences are on wondrous display. Memorable dishes include a rich and velvety medallion of monkfish liver with grated daikon, fennel, and very buttery brioche. A humble-sounding pumpkin tofu is a silky, warm sphere of house-made tofu infused with pumpkin flavor, suspended in an elegant pumpkin consommé. Desserts may sum up an entire season as in a wintery reflection of tangy cider, tart cranberries, eggnog custard, spiced tuiles, and more with fluffy pumpkin cake and frozen custard "snow."
