I've had my share of fun at chic, trendy sushi spots around town, where the upbeat vibe and eye-candy clientele are just as interesting as any of the nigiri that lands on my plate. A few years back, it seemed they were becoming almost as ubiquitous as wine bars and gelato shops.
What's nearest and dearest to my heart, though, is the place that's seen trends come and go, the...
For years, I've been keeping a mental checklist of things I'd like to see in downtown Phoenix, especially in the way of restaurants. So much seems ripe for the taking — there's no French, no Vietnamese, no Spanish. Being a shameless Japanophile, I've longed for an authentic izakaya where I can nibble on Tokyo-style comfort food, grab a beer, and unwind with friends.

The atmosphere inside the place is really great, and the people working there were more than happy to explain things on the menu.

I drive by this place all the time, and the fire is what got me. They have two giant columns near the entire with fire on top. They also have a fire pit near the open bar. To celebrate a birthday, I made a reservation for a nice night out. We started with some free edamame thanks to Yelp. If you check-in using Yelp, you get a free order. Then we had Teppanyaki, which...Read Full Review
