Striking Japanese izakaya in recycled wood and raw concrete serves an impressive selection of shochu and small plates of exquisite grilled meats and veggies and other tasty snacks. Opt for the juicy, smoky chicken gizzards, quail, pork belly, or shiitake — or crab croquettes, bitter melon tempura, or lotus root stir fry. The green-tea soft-serve sundae with mochi and red bean paste is the ideal meal-closer. Hip yet friendly setting features shoes-off kotatsu dining areas and authentic Japanese bathrooms. Tiny, pricey portions.
