Izakaya Kai is the newest restaurant by Chef Adhika Maxi and Karen Carlotta, the same chef and pastry chef – owners of AMKC Atelier. They also collaborated with Chef Hitoshi Kimura, a Japanese chef, with this establishment. This two stories restaurant has different menu on each level. The lobby floor is for the Western/Italian and pastries, and the top floor for the Japanese cuisine. Unfortunately, you can’t order the downstairs’ menu if you’re seated in the Japanese eatery, so I guess we’ll settle this one for today.  While the downstairs interior looks so much like AMKC Atelier, the top floor has a more Asian touch, from the booth seats to the bar seats.
