Fodor's Review

Yes, it's Japanese, but a standard sushi-teriyaki spot this is not. Charlie Trotter's veteran Matthias Merges gives diners a cheffed-up look at contemporary Japanese cuisine with this hip Avondale yakitori joint. Most dishes are modestly priced and portioned to encourage sharing, including okonomiyaki (a savory omelet stuffed with blue prawn, cabbage, and chickpea) and twice-fried chicken with matcha (green tea) and lime, along with plenty of vegetarian-friendly
