They were featured in one of the NY Times’ “Three Days in LA” pieces. I think this was June 2016–we ate there a week or three later.
I’m comparing the prices currently listed on their menu with the prices on the pics I took of the menu with my review. Unfortunately, not all the prices are visible in my pics in the review but enough to show that prices have gone up across the board for the same dishes, some quite sharply:
Marinated Mackerel with Yuzu Kosho Spice: then $10, now $14
Mozuku Seaweed with Grated Mountain Yam: then $7, now $12
Mizuna & Daikon Salad: then $8, now $14
Grilled Thick-cut Prime Beef Tongue with Sea Salt: then $18, now $24
Uni Udon with Hijiki Seaweed: then $18, now $24
Seared Foie Gras with Saikyo Miso: then $18, now $28
and I’m pretty sure the “Uni, Scallop, Blue Crab with Ponzu Jelly” was quite a bit less than $24 when we ate it (unfortunately, my pic doesn’t show the price of that dish).
