LA Weekly's Description

The restaurant, next door to Lazy Ox Canteen and owned by the same guy, Michael Cardenas, is an attempt to bridge the elbows-on-the-table informality of a Japanese izakaya with the high-decibel sheen of a high-end gastropub. And it pretty much works: long communal tables and chandeliers, graffiti murals and slick paintings, a fairly hip, inexpensive wine list and a fetishistic list of oddball beers and sakes that are probably better suited to the small-plates cuisine.

    Featured in LA Weekly's "L.A.'s Best Cocktails: Our 55 favorites and where to find them." (Click 'More Info')

  • AskMen on 01/27/11

    Offers a unique dining experience by Little Tokyo standards, with sushi & an appetizing izakaya menu to be enjoyed at a long communal table. Be sure to check out their solid selection of Asian beer.

    Michael Cardenas and chef Hisaharu Kawabe deliver izakaya (Japanese pub fare) in this lively space in Little Tokyo.

    Nice place to kill time. Looks like sushi bar could be good. Enjoy.
