Tucked below the ground floor, Tetsu Basement offers a tasting menu focusing on meat, seafood and poultry prepared in a variety of cooking techniques. The eight to ten-course menu will continuously rotate on a seasonal basis and highlight fresh local ingredients as well as specialty items from Japan. A 22-foot-long Bubinga wood counter can accommodate 10 seats where guests can experience the theatrics of our chefs cooking from an open kitchen. For more intimate dining, our round tables can accommodate up to five guests. Large parties are encouraged to sit at our rectangle tables that can seat 12 to 24 guests. Tetsu Basement offers an extensive list of cocktails and wine.

The price for dinner at Tetsu Basement is $350 per person, not including gratuity, beverages and tax. Please allow approximately two hours for dinner and dress code is casual and comfortable.
