Food from farmers, natural wines and an earnest understanding that everything we serve is the product of many hands. Kōsa’s kitchen is led by Chef Katy Cole of Tokyo's beloved 20-seat bistro Locale. Intuitive, sensitive to season and inspired by the sublime ingredients selected from her deep network of regional producers, Chef Katy draws inspiration for our Californian Kyoto cuisine from the weekly harvest.

“In Japan we are lucky to have so many wonderful small farms and producers just within an arm’s reach. We are grateful to showcase through our dishes their dedication and ability to be so in tune with the land, and to navigate the constantly changing environment. .” —Chef Katy Cole.
