Concierge.com's insider take:
Like the nearby Togo Shrine, Restaurant-I is about honoring nature. There are the locally sourced vegetables that dominate the menu, the zero-emissions kitchen helmed by Michelin-starred chef Keisuke Matsushima, and the sleek-but-peaceful space with watercolor paintings of produce on the menu covers and giant windows looking out onto the lush flora. Despite the Zen-like surroundings, however, the plates themselves are not filled with meager monk's food: Visitors are encouraged to indulge with lunch and dinner prix fixe menus that offer up inventive options like a regional vegetable and foie gras terrine, gazpacho with pink baby-shrimp mousse, and a summer truffle–scented lamb stew.—Rebecca Willa Davis
