Overall, excellent experience. But Brushstroke is more than just a top-notch restaurant specializing in the authentic yet modern and creative Japanese food. A few explanatory words needed.

What a wonderful find! Food is creative and delicious, staff are friendly, atmosphere was relaxing. Would highly recommend Brushstrokes. The only negative comment is that the outside is so understated my friend who lives next door didn't even realize it existed.

A collaborative effort of Chef David Bouley and Japan’s Tsuji Culinary Institute, Brushstroke presents an inspired modern adaptation of Kyoto's kaiseki cuisine: seasonally focused tasting menus that change throughout the year. Kaiseki menus in the main dining room showcase a wide range of Japanese cuisine, from delicate use of vegetables to sashimi, rice and wagyu. Options include the chef’s artisanal kaiseki menu ($135), the shorter tasting menu ($85) and the fully vegetarian tasting menu ($85). Please note that we do not offer a la carte. Sushi is offered exclusively in a separate area, where Chef Eiji Ichimura presents omakase ($160+) sushi dining. Reservations for sushi are not available online.
