In our world, dominated by a plethora of Western design influences, subtlety is often undervalued. If you allow your eyes to wander upon entering Souzou, the interplay of textures is ravishing. There’s a narrow palette of dark wood and black stone, juxtaposed with light granite run through with brown veins that pick up the shades of the textured floor tile. The stunning wooden windows mimic the silhouette of a bamboo forest. Add accents of crystal, chrome, LED pendants, and huge samurai canvases, and the result is a triumphant setting for laudable cuisine.
