Village Voice's Description

This second-story restaurant, located above midtown spot Sugiyama, is small and packed with a predominantly Japanese clientele, who crowd in after work for a taste of authentic yakitori fare. Claim one of the few wooden tables or sit behind the bar (where the chefs work the grill right in front of you) and order a round of Japanese beers, sake or shochu cocktails. Chicken is the focus here, skewered and grilled in a wide variety of forms. Pick from crisp chicken skin and gizzards to wings and chunks of chicken breast with wasabi and salt. Warning: The cooking style is classic Japanese, meaning your chicken might be a little pink. There are other skewers as well, like garlic, prawns and enoki mushrooms wrapped in bacon. If you don't feel like eating anything off the grill, you can always choose from rice and noodle dishes, homemade tofu and much more.—Keith Wagstaff

    Try the super traditional yakitori—it’s made the way it should be. The flavors are intense and you will walk out of there with a big smile on your face! -Candice Kumai, Top Chef

    Rare poultry and grilled meat on stick never had it so good. An instant classic in Midtown: affordable, cool, and dependable. [Eater 38 Member]

    Try the Pork Loin Skewer and spot it on Foodspotting!

  • Chris T. on 10/21/10

    If you don't eat the chicken heart, you aren't eating yakitori.

  • @JaumePrimero on 08/13/11

    many of the cooks from JG, Per Se, Le Bernadin and others in the area frequent this joint after work. There is a reason, the food is spot on.
