A “portal to Tokyo” “hidden away” beneath an “anonymous” office building near Grand Central, this Japanese izakaya couples “sophisticated” small plates with an “amazing array” of “superb” sakes in a “calm” , bamboo-rich setting; given “dainty” -by-design portions, be prepared to “spend more than you expect.”

There is little for me to say about this place except that I always find myself deeply satisfied every time I visit. Don't be fooled by the fact this styled in the manner of an izakaya. The variety of dishes on the menu combined with the precise execution and presentation puts even some of the more high profile restaurants and established restaurants to shame. Not to mention one of the most noteworthy aspects, the expansive sake list. In short, great food, great drinks. Were the food cheaper this place would receive a 6 out of 5.

It's popular. If you go after 8pm on a Thursday you won't be able to get in unless you're with 2 people and want to sit at the bar. I would add one more star if they had more Shochu varieties as well as more generous servings.

The food was great. Service was great too. Good variety and the tapas menu makes it easy to try different things. Only downside was the size of the tables. The wait staff handled it very well though, syncing with the kitchen to bring dishes when there was space. No reservations allowed so there might be a small wait. Worth it!
