What Makes Nakato Unique?

Throughout the past half century, the Nakato family have always been on site at the restaurant to share their love of Japanese cuisine, starting guests out with the most basic dishes and then gradually introducing more intricate flavors and traditions. Just as her mother and grandmother, Sachi has always believed in making guests feel special and welcome was the utmost of importance.

Nakato was recently selected as one of 25 “historic small restaurants” by the National Trust for Historic Preservation for being a cultural treasure that strengthens the community and carries its legacy and tradition forward in a deeply meaningful way.

At Nakato, we’ll always greet you with a warm welcome and treat you to omotenashi … meaning that every service is from the bottom of the heart – honest, no hiding, no pretending. This is the cornerstone of the Nakato family.
