Tango Room’s artsy atmosphere
No resto speaks to culinary artistry quite like Tei-An. Savor a sumptuous cocktail paired with house specialty soups and fresh, authentic Japanese soba noodles by chef and owner Teiichi Sakurai. This stylish hot spot blends rich woods and glass with concrete, stone and steel for an effortless Tokyoinspired ambiance. We recommend a seat at the exciting soba counter offering a front-row view to the stunning stone garden. 1722 Routh St., #110, tei-an.com
