Chef Nobuo Fukuda collected a Best New Chef nod from Food + Wine and a James Beard Award at his late restaurant Sea Saw before opening this chic but unpretentious contemporary izakaya in a gorgeously renovated historic bungalow (circa 1899), right in the midst of Heritage Square. Stop by for a Japanese microbrew or craft cocktail at the bar or in the lounge, or make a night out of it with sharable small plates that range from the homey (okonomiyaki, steamed short rib buns) to the haute (sashimi bites like grapefruit and hamachi with avocado and truffle oil).
When it comes to some of our favorite restaurants, we wish the chefs would just buckle down and put together a cookbook already. Maybe an entire book of recipes is a bit much to ask for, but how about... More »

I hate to bust your bubble, but this place was total crap! It was w/o taste. It was sooo bad we had to go across the street to Pizza bianco to fill up. The portions were terribly small and had no taste what so ever. I had the pork cutlet and it was overcooked and bland. we spent over $ 75 for two people and wasted every penny. It's not a place for people who know what there eating or Foodies. Terrible!!!!!!!!!!!
In an old house across the alley from Pizzeria Bianco, this is the center of good food in Arizona. There are no two finer restaurants so close in the entire state. On the lunch menu my tonkatsu sandwich was a joyous surprise - tender pork cutlet with traditional tonkatsu sauce and a hint of hot mustard on toasted bread. The soft shell crab sandwich lacked spark but it was fresh and tasty nonetheless. Japanese fries were well cooked and salted just right. For dinner we had many items from the cold and warm menus - and I'd like to vote for the oyster and sea urchin entree as one of the finest I've had anywhere including Japan. Highly recommended.
The accolades heaped upon chef-owner Nobuo Fukuda -- a James Beard Award and "Best New Chef" from Food + Wine -- really are all you need to know about the man running this transformed turn-of-the-century bungalow in downtown Phoenix's Heritage Square. He truly is one of the best things going in the Valley's culinary scene. Fukuda's ever-evolving menu of seasonally appropriate Japanese dishes is one aspect that keeps this restaurant interesting. The other thing simply is food... More »
James Beard Award-winning chef Nobuo Fukuda proves that delicious Japanese cuisine is eagerly awaiting your hungry mouths right here in the Valley. Teahouse by day and self-described funky izakaya (drinking place) by night, Nobuo at Teeter House transports you to the Land of the Rising Sun with elevated versions of Japanese snack foods such as pork belly buns and panko-fried soft-shell crab sandwiches. The menu is constantly evolving and ready to lead your taste buds on a journey to the Far... More »
As of press time, James Beard Award-winning chef Nobuo Fukuda's brand-new izakaya (Japanese-style tavern) is the hot ticket in the Phoenix culinary scene, set inside a beautifully renovated historic bungalow built in 1899. As if Fukuda's reputation as the Valley's premier Japanese chef weren't enough of a draw (his cult of devotees remains strong from his days at the now-defunct Sea Saw), he's created a cozy, welcoming space that happens to be right across from another James Beard winner's...

See: a video interview with Nobuo Fukuda.Four years ago -- fresh out of college -- I left the United States and landed on a small island south of Osaka, Japan, where I spent the better part of a year teaching English to children who will grow up to be fishermen, hanging out at way too many Japanese rock shows and eating fabulously good sushi. It was the best time of my life, but it left me with some lingering questions. Questions like what element in human nature drives us to... More »
