Shintori Null 2
Japanese architect Sakea Miura designed this bunker-like restaurant, which was once a movie theater for retired government officials. Guests enter down a concrete walkway through a bamboo garden and by Shintori’s sole sign, a large white stone. An open kitchen sits on the former stage, tables sit in a valley flanked by a sushi bar and traditional bar, and two balconies provide more dining space. Contemporary Japanese is served including appetizers like cuttlefish with butter sauce and Peking duck rolls. Mains include a grilled beef steak wrapped in a bamboo leaf.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
