This smartly decorated Japanese restaurant and bar with an Irish-pub feel benefits from its location in the heart of Chelsea’s gallery scene. Inside the dark wood interior, Izakaya Ten’s seafood-heavy menu includes deep-fried octopus with green tea salt, baked squid Legs, and braised pork belly in sweet soy broth cooked in yakitori- (grilled) or mushimono- (steamed) styles. At the usually crowded bar, happy hour can run until 3:00 a.m. Thursday through Saturday night thanks to frequent discounts on distilled shochu, Tokyo microbrews, and 40 types of saké.
