Tucked into the upper story of a delightfully faded building in Chinatown, Kissa Tanto transports diners into a glamorous Japanese-Italian supper club full of music and dark corners. We worked with the Kissa Tanto team to create an enchanting story and brand world where each touchpoint is considered, detailed, and charming—all to transport customers from the everyday into the 'House of Plenty.'
Every detail at Kissa Tanto, from the lighting to the menus to the purple neon sign high above the pedestrians on the main thoroughfare of this city’s Chinatown, conjures an imaginary parallel world.

Genteel, an occasion worth dressing up for. Just inside the restaurant’s inconspicuous entrance, an inscribed mirror invites you to “Please fix your hair, and remove the mud from your boots.”
