    Entente joins the list of 2018 Michelin Star recipients with its ever-evolving, imaginative cuisine. 

    Entente [ahn-tahnt], being a “friendly understanding”, highlights collaboration between the chefs. Ingredients drive the dishes that live as staples on the a la carte menu.  Seasonality of game, seafood, meat, and vegetable inspire the direction of the kitchen. Reinterpretations of dishes with cross-cultural influences showcase the true diversity and talent of the chefs. Beverage pairings are available to further enhance the experience.

    The team at Fujimura Hospitality (Arami, SmallBar, Pub97), and Chef Brian Fisher, formerly Chef de Cuisine of Michelin-starred Schwa, is at the helm of the kitchen. Owner Ty Fujimura and Karen Bovinich of Fujimura Hospitality operate the restaurant and Heather Hughes, Director of Events.
