First of all there is no Sushi there, just Sashimi and Nigiri ! No rolls! No ginger ! No wasabi. Nigiris are served at room temperature. It looks like a minimalistic french cuisine mix with japanese tradition but a highly over priced and an unsuccessful...More

We went there for our first anniversary and although it was a nice experience, we will definitely not go back. We arrived a bit early and we were "offered" to have a drink waiting for the table (at the bar) to free up. We had...More

The grand tasting menu at about 250$ and the smaller tasting menu for about 150$ are pricey but well worth it as a splurge. Wide variety of sakes and wines- extensive wine list. No cocktails. Small restaurant so reserve early. Lovely place for a prolonged...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
