Nami’s intimate and exclusive 10-seat omakase counter will offer a modern approach to the traditional chef-curated experience. An energetic cocktail bar and dining room will offer a different experience, with thoughtfully prepared menus that juxtapose precise technique with playful nuances to offer Nami’s interpretive take on Japanese ingredients and flavors.
