a Kaiseki Restaurant
Kaiseki is a form of Japanese cooking that draws its philosophy from tea ceremony traditions in 16th-century Kyoto, Japan. At its core is the belief that we are at our best when we experience every moment with one another as if it were a once-in-a-lifetime gathering. As a culinary expression, Kaiseki is a reflection of the season—an intricate rhythm of taste and texture brought forth in a progression of courses.
Kaiseki Furukawa’s founding chef and co-owner, Shigeyuki Furukawa, was born in Japan and became a Kaiseki chef in Tokyo. He then moved to Kyoto, so he could work directly with master Kaiseki chefs to cultivate a still deeper understanding of the cuisine. It has been Chef Furukawa’s lifelong dream to bring the pure form of this cooking to his own restaurant. After five years in development, Kaiseki Furukawa opened in 2017 at 33 North First Avenue, Minneapolis, MN, Second Floor.
