A clear favourite with the carioca elite, the glamour is as important as the quality of food as reasons to endure the occasional wait for a table. Once seated, order up some edamame (R$17) and a lychee caipisake (a caipirinha made with sake instead of cachaça) and ponder the substantial menu. Indescribably succulent salmon sashimi vies for the attention with more adventurous efforts such as seared tuna with foie gras, while the interior echoes other internationally renowned Asian fusion establishments in London or New York. The service is by and large attentive, prices not prohibitively expensive, and the whole experience pretty essential. Sit at the counter to see the masters at work or grab a window table, but beware sitting down too quickly, the seats seem to have built in whoopee cushions ready to catch the unsubtle-sitter.
