Kyoto 'Goen-cha'

Kyoto Goencha is growing to the most enjoyable tea shop in Japan. Based on such a philosophy, they would like to introduce tradition to our daily life, and provide information that appeals to people who may not know about tea culture yet.


Restaurant ATO 

Tucked between Grand and Thompson, in the sleepier side of west Soho, resides Ato. Where French delicacy meets the Japanese emphasis on fresh and quality ingredients, presented by executive Chef William Shen.

Selecting fresh and quality ingredients and delivering it in its most natural form, Ato's team creates dishes believing that it is more than just food but also an artistic practice; therefore, the restaurant names itself after the Japanese pronunciation of "art." The restaurant houses a raw and minimal space, like a blank canvas highlighting the food.
