The name the two sisters who founded and run the place gave to their restaurant is derived from a Wong Kar Wai film, My Blueberry Night. Its significance here is the California connection, an element these two restaurateurs, Florence and Marie, infused in their Pacific-themed restaurant, where a California-meets-Japan vibe and menu reigns supreme. On offer are traditional Japanese sushi and classic California makis re-visited. What that translates to is a use of French-imagined ingredients such as truffle, strawberries, yuzu, smoked mozzarella, Thai basil, shizo and more. You can expect your fish to come to you in all its cooked forms, like as in Tempura, or perhaps raw, or even maybe seared or half-cooked or marinated in citrus. The atmosphere leans towards zen and loungey with a neon pop here and there.

- Seafood: "The Japanese Spritz, the house cocktail made from gin and yuzushu, washes down well with the pacific-inspired plates. Their signature soup, which is a clear broth delicately flavored with vegetables, is a one-of-a-kind."
- Best for Seafood Because: The makis are the stars here, with creative ingredients like black truffle carpaccio and wild strawberries.
