Kaiseki Motoishi@Beverly Hills ★★★

Incredible Kaiseki. Even more elevated than my last visit. Exquisite presentation. Children's Day theme for their Hassun (seasonal appetizer presentation) in May. Absolutely delicious. Super friendly & welcoming environment. Kazu-san's culinary skills were absolutely amazing. He's Living National Treasure of Kyoto, as described by Shota-san from Fifth Taste. Last Rice Dish Nanatsuboshi was like a much elevated version of TKG (Tamago Kake Gohan) and was refillable. Yamato-san (owner of Sushi Yamamoto, Sushi Kisen, Tonchinkan, etc.) was cooking as well. Love our server Mino-san from Sushi Kisen. $350 per person. Corkage $50 per 750mL. Hot Tea $6. Self-parking $10 at lot. Pop-ups on Monday nights and select Sunday nights at Sushi Yamamoto. Soba lunch pop-ups on Sundays. DM @kaiseki.motoishi to book. [developing story]
