You might remember it as Ceviche Piano. You might also be wondering what’s different here. Well, just so happens that we can assist with that.
Then: A black-and-white, damask-filled parlor with a piano up front for an intimate date night with a ceviche connoisseur.
Now: The whole black-and-white look is still here, but they’ve taken out the piano and Buddhas and replaced them with blue glass, a bamboo-and-wood bar and a massive painting of the goddess Benten. You could have a nice, relaxing business lunch here. With a few colleagues. Or... Benten. Either way.
Then: Mostly Peruvian—ceviche. Lomo. You know the deal.
Now: They’ve kept some of the above, but added nigiri, sashimi and maki made by a former Nobu and Tokyo Blue chef. Stuff like thinly sliced octopus carpaccio and a tempura-shrimp roll topped with sirloin steak.
Then: A notable lack of sake cocktails.
Now: A notable bevy of sake cocktails.
And that’s how you end on a high note.
