There are no longer any a la carte options, just one omakase chef's special menu each day. It's an elaborate presentation of 12 courses that melds traditional kaiseki principles -- fresh seasonal ingredients presented in ways that draw out their inherent flavors -- but served in an order that draws on the Western gastronomic model.
