This fine example of a Japanese izakaya focuses on the drinks and the dishes that best accompany them. This includes a dizzying collection of small plates, ranging from the sublimely simple, such as a piece of grilled black cod ($8.95) with an almost foie gras-like consistency, to the bizarre—like natto wrapped in shiso leaf and tempura fried ($5.95). Hearty bowls of porky ramen ($10.95) are available as well for the less adventurous. No matter your level of comfort with the unknown, you'll be well served here.
