My favorite dates are the ones that start out of the bedroom, I love a tasting menu paired with a quality wine, perhaps an Omakase served in a sequence of Sashimi and Sushi, or a Wagyu Steak with a French Bordeaux. My palate is quite adventurous (with certain preference towards quality fishes). Please find below some spots from my bucket list.

Serves the omakase of Chef Daisuke Nakazawa, former apprentice of Jiro, one of the best sushi chefs of the world. Check his documentary for more information.
