Using organic vegetables and natural meat is the result of focusing on the taste and quality of food that Chef Hideyo wants to cook and serve with 100% confidence and responsibility as a chef. He uses French-Italian methods to create his own style of cooking, with emphasis on great taste and safe nutrition. Enjoy small plates, wine, freshly cooked al dente pastas, fresh sea food, and natural meat entrees.
The food is consistently wonderful, beautifully-presented, and inventive. Hideo, the chef, has fascinating pairings of French and Japanese ingredients and styles, always executed with great skill. In general, the first courses are more Asian-style, while the main courses are more French-style, but neither is the same old standard predictable fare.
Nor is 2117 just another French-Japanese or Cal-Asian place. The flavors are unique and Hideo uses ingredients that are often slightly different from other restaurants. In addition, service is always excellent -- the chef will accomodate any dietary requrements or preferences without compromising his dishes.
I'm sorry that the other reviewer had such a bad experience, but I've taken many friends there and all have been quite impressed with the food. Truly a hidden gem.
We are locals and enjoy eating at French Japanese restaurants. The atmosphere here is nice, but I should have been tipped off by the sticky floor and the fact that during peak hours there was only one other table seated. The presentation of the dishes we ordered was lovely, however my loup de mer fish arrived cold and the garnish of rock shrimp was not fresh. The sauce was overly buttery and cold as well. The portion was way too small and not very tasty. My wife had the soft shell crab which was very good, but the black sushi rice was flat and not very appetizing.
We left mad and disappointed.
