Ah, below is the reason for my absence from blogging yesterday. Four of us started dinner a little after 9 at Kajitsu, an austere and soothing little space in the East Village serving Shojin cuisine, and ended up closing the place down. Everything felt very healthy and wholesome. They do what they do very well, but as it is all vegetarian (and probably mostly vegan), it's probably not something I'll necessarily crave or put at the top of my list when hunger strikes.
Shots from the eight-course hana menu:
This place used beautiful glassware and exquisite dinnerware. I was definitely admiring the water glasses which are super light/thin and apparently imported from Japan.
I did appreciate that I was not painfully stuffed after this meal. I would happily take a vegetarian friend here.
Happy Friday, finally!
