Don’t expect a slick, modern look or yuzu martinis. With handwritten signs advertising noodle specials and a grubby, cramped dining room, this is a no-frills strip-mall destination for authentic Japanese bar food, sushi, and sashimi. Try tender miso-marinated black cod as well as peony shrimp nigiri—servers will present you with the prawn heads, deep-fried and topped with a slice of lemon.
