This high-concept bunker of glass, aluminum, and concrete overlooking Parliament House is a gathering place for power brokers and foodies alike. Chef Dallas Cuddy is fresh from a stint at London's Nobu, and his French-inspired dishes have a distinctly Japanese edge. Cuddy likes to let his ingredients—super-fresh seafood, truffles, seasonal fruits—speak for themselves on the plate. And speak they do, most eloquently, in the signature dish of Wagyu beef tartare with sake jelly, truffled eggs, and quail gyoza (dumpling), or the barramundi fillet with spinach-wakame puree and smoked octopus.

Closed Sundays.
