Leaving Decisions To Someone Else
Chef's Choice, Omakase
noun, verbal noun
This word comes from 任せる, but without the る on the end it's a noun. You also have the honorific お on the beginning, which is a clue that you're addressing someone else. So you're entrusting something to the person you're talking to, and this means leaving decisions to someone else. This is used a lot in restaurants, where it means chef's choice or simply omakase. In other words, you're leaving the choice of food to the chef.
It can be used in other contexts, too, like if you leave your haircut up to your stylist or a flower arrangement up to the florist, or even if you follow the recommended program at the gym.
