I finally discovered Abri, on a sweet summer day, before I got my four teeth out (one comforting as can be). In a wooded space narrow as a handkerchief recalling some Japanese isakayas, chef Katsuaki Okiyama, behind his opened counter, prepares perfect dishes full of that Japanese delicacy. Whether it’s the asparagus and Comté cream with crumble and clovers, or that sweet potato soup and verbena espuma, or even that cooked to perfection-prime cut beef accompanied by caramelized onions and turnips, everything is simply refined and delicious.
