Village Voice's Description
This isn't your average sushi place. First of all, the dÃ©cor has a delightfully ramshackle sensibility perfectly suited for the artsy East Village. Mismatched chairs sit around a large wooden table topped with a globe, surrounded by oil paintings, potted plants and all sorts of quirky bric-a-brac. It can get pretty crowded here, with big groups of in-the-know locals coming here for a diverse array of Japanese dishes. Start with appetizers like the tofu hot pot with kelp broth or the deep-fried shrimp cakes. The sushi offerings are pretty standard, as are the tempura and udon choices. Hearty entrees include an oven-roasted free-range chicken served with black sesame sauce, broiled eel with unagi sauce and a prime rib-eye served with butter. You can even cook shabu-shabu at your own table. Sorry, deal seekers; the restaurant is no longer BYOB, now serving a variety of Japanese beers and sake.âKeith Wagstaff
Tips from foursquare
Delicious drunk writing spot
Don't ever come here on a Friday night. Waited for an hour just to have one dish to come out.
Pork tonkatsu sandwich is da bomb!
Pretty fresh sushi everytime with good portions of fish. Like soba? Tem zaru soba noodles is good - cold dipping sauce with a side of tempura.
Get the katsu-sandwich! Best (only place?) in the city!
