Fodor's Review

Red paper lanterns dimly illuminate couples sipping sake from tiny wooden boxes at this underground (in geography and attitude) Japanese bar. Polite servers can help navigate the impressive but reasonably priced list, as well as the menu of Japanese bar food. The entrance is easy to miss: look for a small wooden sign at the top of a sidewalk staircase, then step down and ring the buzzer to get in.
