Although billed as a modern seafood restaurant, the thriving L2O does global cuisine with a heavy emphasis on Japanese. Traditional Tatami rooms are part of the landscape, inspired by Chef Laurent Gras’s trip to the Land of the Rising Sun. Accommodating up to eight guests, diners are treated to a tranquil setting of grass-mat flooring and a sunken yellow cedar table with leather Zaisu seating, as well as a seasonal tasting menu that runs about $150 and includes 8 unique courses, from big eye tuna tartare to grand marnier soufflé.?
