O by Kissaki originally opened in the Hamptons during the summer of 2021 at the former Bamboo and Zokkon space on Montauk Highway in East Hampton. New for summer 2022 is their signature Itameshi cuisine conceived by notable chef Chris Jaeckle. Itameshi cuisine is the Japanese approach to Italian food.

The name O by Kissaki represents the curve on top of the Japanese Gyuto knife. It is the strongest and sturdiest part of the knife. It also represents a focus on hot dishes for the menu concept, particularly fish.
