Located on the seventh floor of the Park Hyatt, NoMI is a Michelin one-star restaurant focusing on fresh, regional ingredients. Inside the dining room, hand-blown glass sculptures shaped like branches hang above the most-desired window seats, while restored original mosaic tiles cover the floor. Executive chef Ryan LaRoche creates a seasonally inspired cuisine, and while dishes rotate on and off the menu as the weather changes, the pan-seared diver sea scallops and the signature sushi and sashimi platter are staples.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

This fifth-generation <em>unagi</em> shop sources the highest-quality varieties of eel available in Japan. Set menus vary in price according to the grade of eel, which is served steamed, grilled, dipped in sweet soy-based sauce and accompanied by rice and pickles.

We loved: (grilled served without the syrupy sauce).

Insider tip: The first-floor dining room of the old wooden house tends to be jammed, but there are private rooms upstairs.
