Kawai specializes in the “Kai- seki style” of Japanese cook- ing that incorporates small course meals infused with the freshest ingredients, which results in exquisite flavor, beautiful presentation and a memorable “spirit.”
Situated conveniently in the Eleven50 Building on King Street (the parking en- trance is on Young Street), Akira Japanese Restaurant is easily accessible for those stopping by for a dine-in meal, or to pick up tasty to- go items to enjoy later. Akira Japanese Restaurant serves as the perfect destination for
a pau hana get-together, or a delicious lunch or dinner with family and friends.
Katsura (Aku) Sashimi ($16) is a popular starter and offers a fresh take on the skipjack tuna as the deep red fish offers a high fat content; its peak season of availability runs from April through Sep- tember, so now is a great time
