Kuu – (pronounced koo) is a word that translates to ‘the art of eating.’ That is more than just a name, it is something that we truly believe in at Kuu. From the elegant plating, to the freshness of our fish, art infuses everything we do at Kuu. We are a modern Japanese restaurant that specializes in locally raised, seasonal, tapas style dishes. Whether it be the savory flavor of the freshest cuts of sashimi or the extensive wine list along with hand crafted cocktails, or even the antique styling of our yakisugi wood tables, we at Kuu hope that when you sit down, you experience it as you would a fine work of art.
