Concierge.com's insider take:

The chef at Gesshinkyo has created his own rusticated version of shojin-ryori (Buddhist vegetarian cuisine), using exotic vegetables and grains from all over Japan. The ten courses in the 12,000-yen set menu (about $100) and the eight in the 8,000 yen set menu (about $70) are each deceptively simple—a small block of perfect sesame tofu topped by a crisp snow-pea pod, for example. Like the food, the setting is understated rather than showy: simple, private tatami-mat rooms for two to four people, with hanging scrolls, a small flower arrangement in the corner, and the pleasant hint of incense in the air. There's also a cooking class on the second Saturday of the month.

Dinner only; closed Sundays.
