LA Weekly's Description

At n/naka in Palms, chef Niki Nakayama presents a modern interpretation of kaiseki, the Japanese formal, multicourse style of dining that emphasizes seasonality. And so a meal unfolds, in quiet stanzas: A blue shrimp, split open and grilled to its buoyant, juicy ideal and coated with yuzu cream; a modern interpretation of a sashimi course involving otoro, scallions and a tiny sliver of mildly sweet butter flavored with uni; a plate of lovingly arranged sashimi offerings, including tai (sea bream), kanpachi and one perfect Kumamoto oyster with ponzu and lemon. —Besha Rodell

    It is occasionally difficult to ascertain whether the most impressive bit of a dish is the chewy slab of Japanese halibut fin or the thimble-sized cucumber garnishing the fish.

    The fish is as fresh as Urasawa - this is my new fav restaurant in LA-Amazing!

    Sit back and enjoy the garden-fresh produce at this contemporary kaiseki spot:

    Kimura sake is amazing and goes well with most of the omakase tasting menu
