Oh, but you're in for a treat at Yakiniku Futago, where the Korean barbecue on offer is actually Japanese at heart. There are only a handful of yakiniku spots in the city, and this one is particularly cool. Inside the sleek Gramercy space, the details are grand, with reclaimed wood plank floors, walls alternately covered in exposed brick and Japanese scribes, as well as a dramatically lit bar lined with premium spirits. During the popular lunch, only a small but divine selection of ramen is available, accompanied by a rich tonkotsu broth. The thing that sets a meal apart at this Japanese jewel is the stunning beef quality-cuts like black Wagyu or Hamideru kalbi are fantastically creamy, bold in meaty flavors and rich with fatty notes.
