Call it a trip to Tokyo without the tariff—this sleek izakaya is tucked down a side street in bustling midtown. Once inside, grab a table for two or join the crowd at the open kitchen counter surrounding the smoky robata. The waiters talk up the omakase, but it’s worth letting your own instincts guide you on a personalized tour of their offerings.Dishes boast a great value, especially the lunch set, starring hamachi and salmon sashimi, miso- and soy-glazed cod, chilled cabbage and daikon, as well as grilled Washu beef. Sukiyaki is a seasonal special of beef served in a hot pot with tofu, vegetables and noodles. Other standbys include smoky bamboo shoots with bonito; and tsukune, a ground chicken meatball brushed with teriyaki and dipped in raw egg.
