Everyone loves it when you are honest until you are honest with them. Then you are an asshole.

OMAKASE
"Omakase" translates roughly as "I trust you [the chef]." In its English usage, however, it is sometimes misconstrued as a tasting menu. It is much deeper than that. It means you're leaving the decision of what food is served to the chef's judgment, based on what is available and in season that day and your allergies or food restrictions.

The Okra Bar omakase menu is not available before serving for these reasons.

The menu is divided into: composed dish courses featuring seasonal and preserved vegetables based on Max's time spent with shojin ryori chef Hiroshi Nakahara and highlights ingredients grown both on the roof and from small farms throughout the region; the nigiri sushi course featuring 10-12 pieces of fish and shellfish in various states of ageing; the freshwater eel course; the soup course using different chinese and asian medicinal herbs; the dessert course featuring seasonal fruit meant to end the meal on a light note.
