Fodor's Review

More Tokyo street chic than standard sushi house, this izakaya—the Japanese equivalent of a bar with appetizers—with bamboo-screen booths serves up surprising fare, from chicken tartare to wonderful yakitori, skewers such as bacon-wrapped enoki, bacon-wrapped mushrooms, and pork belly. (Anything skewered here is sure to please.) Dinner beats lunch at Ippuku, and savvy diners make reservations and arrive early for the best selection. The bar, which opens onto the street, pours an impressive array of sakes and shōchū (liquor distilled from sweet potatoes, rice, or barley).
