Last December, Ristorante Incroci opened opposite the tree-lined river from ACROS Fukuoka as a higher-end version of the popular Osteria Incroci in Daimyo. Owner-chef Hiroshi Murayama’s specialty is homemade pasta taglierini. The firm, thin noodles come topped with a decadent mushroom sauce and shaved black truffles. Another exquisite dish is the white asparagus seasoned with lemon butter and a light sauce of egg yolks and white wine. Try a lunch or dinner course, or sample from the a la carte menu. And with cherry blossom season near, the terrace seats can’t be beaten.
