Venue Info

One of Manhattan's pioneers in shojin cuisine -- a style of multi-course vegetarian cooking with roots in Zen Buddhism -- this upscale, Michelin-starred restaurant offers a dining experience that's memorable in both visual and culinary scope. There are two menus available -- four-course or eight-course -- and though both change monthly, they always feature seasonal vegetables and wheat gluten, or nama-fu. Kajitsu's sparse, minimalistic interior matches its Zen-like ethos and puts the spotlight on the poetically-arranged plates of food.
