Osaka-born Akira Kishimoto puts his Òeat with your eyesÓ philosophy on full display at his spot on The Drive. The room’s décor is clean and spare, placing the focus squarely on Kishimoto’s artfully plated dishes. Sushi is playful and creativeÑthe Mamenoki Roll combines edamame and avocado with carrots and cornflakes for a textural counterpoint. Don’t overlook the donburi: exquisitely trimmed sashimi atop truly craveworthy chef’s special rice that incorporates shiitake mushrooms, sesame, shiso, ginger, and pickled daikon. Housemade yuzu ice cream perfectly balances tart and creamy with a floral sweetness.
