Renowned “Iron Chef” Masaharu Morimoto brings his many talents to the revamped Japonais restaurant, which has been made over with walnut tabletops and an open kitchen. A full sushi bar complements a menu of small plates from hamachi tacos to steamed foie gras oysters and new East-meets-West flavors. His omakase menus are especially over the top and in good hands with executive chef Hisanobu Osaka, who worked with Morimoto for eight years.
