Nisei

$$$$
Written by

Nisei is a Japanese American restaurant in Russian Hill from a Californios alum. It's also a fine dining restaurant that's perfect for a Big Night Out. At $174 per person for a 12-course meal, you’re probably not dropping in on a whim. But you’ll want to get here eventually to experience their excellent tasting menu, which is based on washoku cuisine, a Japanese approach to cooking that focuses on seasonality and balanced flavors. The lineup of delicately plated dishes includes things like binchotan-grilled unagi with shishito peppers, mochi dumplings floating in a fragrant bone broth, or a tiny dorayaki filled with banana and topped with caviar. Every dish that lands on the table is unlike anything we typically see at other upscale Japanese restaurants in the city - for one, you won’t find sushi or ramen here. Ultimately, this place is all about high quality ingredients, thoughtful preparation, and pushing the boundary of what Japanese fine dining can be.
