Fodor's Review

A flight of dimly lighted stairs leads down to a buzzing Japanese yakitori and sake bar. The oblong bar is usually jammed with film-festival types, the young art and fashion crowd or classical music lovers eating before a concert in the nearby Town Hall. Order small plates of skewers like grilled chicken, with or without cheese. Deep-fried fish balls are also popular, served with Japanese mayonnaise. In addition to more than 20 types of sake by the glass, you'll see large bottles of sake on the "bottle-keep" shelves—these are for people who keep their own bottle to have when they come to eat. While the price of individual items is relatively small, the bill can mount up quickly, and watch the stairs on the way out.
