Shiratoya has clearly been renovated to give an authentic Japanese feel to the place. Here you are welcomed in a polite, nearly friendly way. As the wine menu is not remarkable it is better to go with the honorable list of sake wines and Japanese beers. The steamed vegetables, which normally are simple without any particular character, are unexpectedly subtle. The sushi, nigiri, rolls, and sashimi are authentic, perfectly prepared, exceptionally fresh and excellent quality. The menu includes a complete range of classical Japanese dishes, prepared with the utmost respect for ingredients, without whimsy and in strict keeping with the rules. This restaurant’s guiding principle seems to be the quality of the products and the execution, rather than innovation. The tone is classical while the dishes are remarkably fresh and accurate: sushi, ramen, chirachi, salmon or chicken terriaki are all very well known but here they are handled with great talent and the result is tasty indeed.
