Wine List Description
The wine list skews toward fruit-forward, light-in-oak Sauvignon Blancs, Pinot Grigios and Pinot Noirs, with a stellar saké selection. “To enhance the delicate flavor of fish, wines should not be overwhelming, such as not too oaky, not too tannic. The balance is the key,” says sommelier Yukiko Kawasaki.

Riot-Worthy Dish
Wine Enthusiast editors asked America's 100 Best Wine Restaurants of 2013 "which dish would start a riot if it was taken off the menu?" Their riot-worthy dish is…
"The Big Eye tuna pizza and Kobe beef tataki are signature dishes."

Perfect Pairing
Two perfect pairings are the grilled walu with Gary Farrell’s 2009 Pinot Noir from the Russian River Valley and the snapper sashimi matched with the 2011 Illumination Sauvignon Blanc from Napa Valley.

Wine Events
Saké flights feature six selections from jumai to daiginjo, offering guests an opportunity to explore the world of saké.


Wine Enthusiast Magazine announced the third annual issue of America's best wine-centric establishments, and to commemorate the list, WE hosted a rooftop party where we honored this year's recipients and toasted the exploding culture of wine and food.
