Village Voice's Description

As the restaurant's name would suggest, chef Akiko Thurnauer produces grub more akin to Japanese home cooking than haute gastronomy. Still, you'll likely be charmed by the bright, streamlined décor. Vegans and vegetarians will also rejoice over a bounty of meat-free dishes like brussels sprouts with miso butter, tosaka seaweed salad, and a burdock root rice bowl. Pescatarians, meanwhile, will savor Family Recipe's do-or-die dish—the okonomiyaki special, A/K/A a molten pancake chock-a-block with seafood and topped with writhing bonito flakes.

    Serving untraditional plates ranging from Daddy's favorite brick chicken with xo sauce and Japanese seven-spice pork sausages to pork-belly buns and squid-ink dumplings.

  • Gilt City on 02/15/12

    Born in Tokyo, owner and chef Akiko Thurnauer combines her mother’s authentic recipes with her father’s legacy of hospitality to create a cozy Japanese gastropub.

  • Serious Eats on 04/25/13

    Fresh and unfussy Japanese cooking reigns here. Though not always perfect, it's earnest and vegetable-forward, hardly a challenge to make a good meal.

    Cozy, cute and no fuss restaurant. Open kitchen. Good food. My favorites were the pork buns and the eggplant buns. Love the abundance of vegetarian options.
