MICHELIN Guide

This Bucktown addition is a family-run tavern worth seeking out for its homespun take on izakaya eats and gracious hospitality. Start with single-serve sake in a jar so cute you'll want to smuggle it home, or a cocktail inspired by Japanese literature (the Norwegian Wood, a delicious interpretation of the Haruki Murakami novel blends whiskey, Luxardo, sweet vermouth, and orange bitters). The array of small plates brims with creativity and flavor: tsukune are coarse-ground, delightfully chewy, and achieve a mouthwateringly charred exterior from having been grilled over bincho-tan; while tako-yaki are as delicious as any found on a Tokyo street cart. Korroke, a panko-crusted potato croquette, comes with tonkatsu sauce for delicious dunking. - MICHELIN guide inspectors
