French doors let the light in to this pocket-sized space, which tucks a small bar, a couple of booths, and a few small tables into its high-ceilinged confines. An artfully constructed aesthetic is also evident in the menu, a sometimes pleasingóand sometimes frighteningópastiche of French and Japanese cuisine. Offerings change frequently, but one standard is a seasonal interpretation of the bento box, with small portions showcasing contrasting flavors and textures. The guiding spirit behind this eclecticism is quirky owner/chef Marja Samsom, who's known as much for her unusual manner and tiny dog as for her ingredient-driven cooking. Go with an open mind.Live Music
