Need some zen serenity in your life right now? Just check out our man Huge Galdones' slideshow of the food at Sumi Robata Bar. Robata is about the simplicity of Japanese food, including the simplicity of grilling done to high perfection. And Sumi is about chef Gene Kato's devotion to producing perfectly-executed food for a small number of guests in a human-scaled, serene surrounding. See how they come together on the plate in our slideshow below, starting with some items from the kitchen, then ones cooked over the robata grill.
