Kaneyoshi@Little Tokyo ★★★

Kaneyoshi x Inaba Collaboration. On Tuesdays for limited time only. Returning to Kaneyoshi after their well-deserved Michelin Star. Appetizers and Omakase Sushi were skillfully hand-crated. Beautiful execution and delicious taste. Food portions were just right. Great selection of sake. Hopped to Sawa next door for cocktails after dinner. Reservations available on release dates via Tock.
