I heard about Teisui through a digital newsletter that listed new restaurants for the season to try. Teisui is a tasting-menu only Japanese restaurant serving food ryokan-style – in the manner of meals served at a traditional Japanese inn. The kaiseki menu attempts to be seasonal with its presentations. It was easy for me to secure a mid-week reservation using Opentable.com. There are both counter and table seating options.
There weren’t any wines that I really wanted to have (and it was the middle of the work week and I had to each the next day), so I just went with hot tea as my beverage with the meal.
The starter snack was off-menu. It was a cold chawanmushi (Japanese egg custard) with edamame espuma, foie gras and uni. It was an unexpected way to start, as the custard or egg course usually appears later in these types of menus.
