  • Yamamoto's creations are dazzling and inventive yet still rooted in kaiseki tradition, using new techniques only when appropriate.
  • His best dishes include a Candy Apple, powdered ice cream encased inside a candy shell and a crab hot pot annotated with a sketch of how it was made.
  • He quest for knowledge is limitless, once sending in a sea eel for a CT scan to better understand its bone structure and create the cleanest cut.

  • His dishes are playful enough to intrigue your curiosity without compromising classic flavors and preparation.
  • His ideas are revolutionary: he silk-screens a squid-ink QR barcode onto the plate which can be scanned by a cell phone to read more about the dish.
