Enjoy charcoal grilling seasonal locally-sourced ingredients!
Believing that “the most traditional way of cooking is charcoal grilling,” we are particular about our charcoal. All of our charcoal is made by our owner with the utmost care using a kiln located on our premises.In addition, the frames of our irori, the traditional Japanese sunken hearth, are made of natural wood. Sit next to an irori and experience the sights, sounds, and smells of charcoal grilling, as well as the tastes of the finest natural ingredients. This is our style. Have a good time eating at an irori hearth as you feel the warmth of a charcoal fire.
