Downstairs is the Ito En retail shop; upstairs, an elegant restaurant serving food inspired by kaiseki, the Japanese meal served after a tea ceremony. And most of the dishes on the a la carte lunch menu and the three-level prix fixe dinner menus are flavored with the key ingredient: striped bass roasted with tea leaves, green-tea noodles with tofu, and lobster-salmon-and-grapefruit salad with green-tea vinaigrette.


Omakase dinner, $150—$200.
