We only dined at Naka once before it closed its doors in January. Maybe Seattle wasn’t ready for Naka’s fine dining kaiseki concept, offering 6, 10 and 15-course menu options. Nevertheless, we were pleased to hear that Chef Shota Nakajima reopened with a new concept in the same space as Adana.

Sweat City: Five FlyWheel Classes + Review
I had never taken a spin class before this. Something about it always intimidated me.
