So secchu means compromise, but when it is used (not that often), it might also mean fusion or a blend. Here it is a bit of both because the meal is a compromise between a tempura meal which would just be a sequence of fried items with maybe one raw course, and a kaiseki meal where the point (well, a point) is to have a variety of preparation methods, and also because there are some French-ish techniques applied. The meal started with non-tempura appetizers, including a sashimi course (sawara, on top of an exceptional slice of dashi braised daikon), a pate of bobo chicken liver served with an onsen tamago to be used as sauce, a little tomato soup with thyme oil, and something else I forget, before proceeding to tempura items (nanohana, hirame, tachiuo, anago, hotategai, kurumaebi, satsuma imo), a soba dish (very good green soba topped with beef) and dessert. Le Zaune à Dédée and some Shichida 75 went well with everything as you'd expect. Surprisingly inexpensive given you're paying a plane ticket for many ingredients.

Six seats, not douchy, nice folks.

indeed the $75-100 omakase puts it right in the sweet spot of the price range we're looking at for  dinner out in august. still waiting to see if there will be tables available at crown shy and/or rezdora on the nights we have sitters but i'm now tempted to do either crown shy or rezdora one night and this place the other
