Summary: Fine dining with a veggie focus.

In the heart of a quiet district, Hajime stands as a beacon of contemporary gastronomy. No cameras are allowed beyond its sleek glass doors, ensuring an intimate dining experience. The venue is renowned for its elegant and veggie-forward tasting menu, including the signature dish 'Planet Earth'—a stunning array of 110 vegetables, grains, and herbs. Each dish is a visual and sensory journey, reflecting a dialogue with the Earth and the changing seasons, crafted to evoke the richness of nature's cycles. Dietary needs are catered to with precision, provided they're communicated well in advance. For a taste of Hajime's unique culinary philosophy without the full tasting menu, a shorter version is available, excluding the famed 'Planet Earth'. Adding to the allure is a well-curated wine list that complements the innovative menu, making Hajime a must-visit destination for food connoisseurs seeking a deep connection with their dining experience.
