Omakase @ n/naka - #2

  • Sep 21, 2013 · 8:45 PM

This is a makeup dinner for me because I double booked myself for the previous week.  It starts later and the table's smaller but if there's enough interest I'll see if I can't score a few more seats.

This omakase-only, ultrapricey Japanese on an industrial strip of Overland Avenue presents "perfectly crafted", "fascinating" feasts deemed "a delightful extravagance"; at the helm is chef Niki Nakayama – one of LA's few female Japanese culinarians – who uses "fabulous quality" ingredients, including veggies from the restaurant's organic garden, and oversees attentive service in the modern setting, making it an absolute "must for foodies."

Dinner Menu

We're doing the Modern Kaiseki menu. A $165 thirteen course prix fixe with $85 optional wine pairing.  That's $212.50 w/tax + tip or $322.50 w/tax + tip if you get the wine pairing.  Their website refers to it as 

A deeper exploration of traditional of Kaiseki service with modern accents in technique and flavor pairings.  

Here's a sample menu from the spring of this year:

    Sadly, n/naka ranks up there with Saam as far as disappointments go. I found the food to be either to rich or too bland. It's very difficult for me to understand what people seem to think is so special about this restaurant. It was good meeting Kimmi and Lynn is always fun to be around but we'll have to meetup at another venue because I will not be returning to n/naka.

      I've got to agree - there were some high highs, but there were some lows, too, and at those prices, I had hopes for something really sublime. (Thanks for the kind words, though - the company made the meal!)

    This rather nicely solves my own double booking problem. Thanks for setting it up.
