Shiori is perfect if you’ve got something to celebrate, but want to do things a little differently. Every evening, 10 guests sit around a Japanese-style bar surrounding an open kitchen during a single seating at 7:30pm. Everyone chooses their own chopsticks and ceramic sake cup, then the omakase begins. The food focuses on European ingredients cooked with Japanese techniques, like kingfish sashimi with yellow turnips or Bresse chicken in dashi and sancho pepper. The bites are small, so don’t show up starving, or afterwards, plan to go for some gelato at nearby Cuore Di Vetro before it closes at 11pm.
