OGAWA (written: 小川) : Little River

The Japanese Experience

Enter Ogawa, where every detail is meticulously crafted to transport you into the refined heart of Japanese culture. Master Chef Masa & Chef Royce have curated an ever-evolving Kappo menu, paying homage to the sacred traditions of Edomae cuisine and showcasing its pristine ingredients and time-honored techniques. 


Drawing inspiration from the classic Minka house, Ogawa transports diners to an oasis of refined flavors and textures that can only be experienced at the sushi bar Chef Masa & Chef Royce reside behind. The beverage program is helmed by Sommelier Luis Martinez, whose discerning palate has curated a selection of classic wines, artisanal sakes, and rare Japanese whiskies.


Ogawa features a private Japanese garden, meticulously tended by a local Ikebana artisan. In addition, you will be invited into a striking room filled with traditional Japanese calligraphy scrolls, contemporary nihonga artworks & stunning design conceived by owner Alvaro Perez Miranda. 


Our Kappo menu starts with a series of small dishes focused on seasonal ingredients at the peak of freshness. The menu then moves into a series of 8-10 seasonal nigiri, ending with a handroll, miso soup and dessert to finish.
