The Meeting Place: Intersect by Lexus

Designed by cult interior designer Masamichi Katayama, and catered to individuals with an interest in the arts, culture and technology, guests here are invited to use the venue as a third space, a destination between work and home, where one can linger, converse, peruse the books, and enjoy a gourmet meal. The top floor encompasses the café and library with a stunning exhibition space below with a floor composed of an installation of Lexus car parts painted white and encased in reinforced glass. Executive chef Tomas Reger weaves Japanese and Mediterranean elements into the menu. Try the seared scallops with butternut squash and samphire, where the spicy yuzu jelly cuts through the sweetness of the scallop. The “cheesecake,” with its disparate mounds of cream, passion fruit curd, and cookie crumble, comes together beautifully.
