Otoko
You might expect austerity and modesty at a kaiseki in Kyoto, but that’s not what you’ll find at this remarkable jewel box of a restaurant secreted away inside the South Congress Hotel. Bright illuminated white panels and their black stripes echo Japanese shoji and encompass the 12-seat dining room. It looks like something out of a Stanley Kubrick film, and knife-wielding chef Yoshi Okai plays to the design with mischief and edginess. His menu of more than 20 dishes marvel with their artistic presentation and bold flavor, from raw Japanese sea bream to jiggly mounds of Hokkaido uni. The dishes look like something you’d expect to get in Japan, but the colorful service from the tattooed chef who moonlights as a rock-and-roll singer feels uniquely Austin.
