Fodor's Expert Review Ippuku
More Tokyo street chic than standard sushi house, this izakaya—the Japanese equivalent of a bar with appetizers—is decked with bamboo-screen booths. Servers pour an impressive array of sakes and shōchū and serve up surprising fare. Savvy diners make reservations and arrive early for the best selection. Gratuity is included; tipping is prohibited.
