Village Voice's Description

This Japanese-Korean grill-it-yourself spot distinguishes itself with a focus on offal--or horumon, meaning something that's thrown away. "Yakitori-horumon" (basically, grilled variety meats) is a restaurant style invented by Korean immigrants to Japan shortly after World War II. Here, it's beef, beef, and nothing but beef. Try a few cold dishes--like sesame-seeded raw beef liver, or boiled Achilles‚ tendons in chile oil--before turning to your tabletop grill. Bits of wine-dark heart sputter and smoke beefily; sweetbreads turn firm but creamy over the fire. Add a plate of kimchi or crudités with spicy mayo to counteract all that cow.

    Went to Takashi with my roommate and another friend with no expectations. It's open until midnight on Friday and Saturday which is awesome. Upon entering I noticed, most of the servers (and clientele) were not Japanese. This is usually a bit of a red flag for me, but I figured I'm in New York so probably not a reflection of the quality of food (it wasn't at all).

    Congratulations! You’ve unlocked the raw meat and grilled offal badge! Ask for liver and rib-eye, and don’t forget your vegetables. Also: hot pepper paste. And: Sake!

    If you love charred cow innards, make a beeline for this elegant new Japanese yakiniku grill restaurant where you can cook your own beef heart and chuck flap with uni. Featured in Where to Eat 2011!

    Offal-freaks will want to try the stomachs, intestines, and tongues, but there are a few steaks on the menu for less adventuresome diners, too. [Eater 38 Member]

    Tony’s new favorite restaurant in New York City! It is a mix of Japanese and Korean BBQ styles. As seen on Travel Channel’s The Layover with Anthony Bourdain.

  • The New Yorker on 02/15/11

    A two-wall mural offers descriptions and illustrations of various cuts of meat and horumon (literally, “discarded goods,” or offal), with notes on their vitamin content and supposed health benefits.
