Na Camo Guro

Camo (or more usually, kamo) means “duck” — the key ingredient in a good half of the dishes. In this case it refers to aigamo, the domesticated kind, which are raised on a farm run by the restaurant’s parent company in the far north of Yamagata Prefecture. Salted and dried as a delectable “kamo ham” starter; ground and grilled as yakitori-style tsukune; cooked sukiyaki style at the table in front of you; or prepared Rossini style (kamo burgers topped with foie gras), all these duck dishes are intended to be nibbled on like tapas. There is a good selection of wine and sake, with Aramasa, Mori no Kaze and Shichi-honyari the standouts.
