Every month, wa’z owner and head chef Hiro Tawara assembles a menu that puts seasonal local and Japanese ingredients front and center. He takes great care to make sure his diners sense the seasonality of each dish. He also ties his menu closely to Japanese traditional events. The result is a memorable meal of Japanese haute cuisine thoughtfully presented in kaiseki fashion. With his extensive experience at a renowned Kaiseki restaurant in Kyoto, he creates exquisite dishes that satisfy your eyes as well. It is fun to talk with him over the counter while dining.
