The Collective’s first original Concept is a modern izakaya called Renkon, which is the Japanese word for lotus root – one of the key symbols of Vietnam and an expression of The Collectives deep roots in Vietnam. As a modern izakaya, Renkon’s kitchen features skewers and food meant to be shared with friends. Our team is pleased to guide our clients in designing a menu for each table. Our drinks list has a focus on Japanese beverages with an extensive selection of Sake and Sochu. All of our cocktails are based on Izakaya classics and are made to match the food being served.
Designed by Sean Dix, the main dining floor features a lively bar and is surrounded by the dining room. The large mural a the back was created by Masami Teraoka, known for combining elements of woodblock tradition with his knowledge of American popular culture to make satricial statements. The central grand staircase leads to a private dining area on the first floor for large groups focused around a traditional “binchotan,” or robata, grill.
A true izakaya experience!
