Situated in the theatre district, this award-winning Japanese restaurant draws an eclectic, celeb-spotted crowd with its stylish glass-and-wood design, lively atmosphere, and robatayaki cuisine (cooked over an open charcoal grill). The dining area is centered on a U-shaped sushi and robata bar made with rough-hewn exotic hardwood, while floor-to-ceiling windows open onto Charlotte Street during warmer months. There’s also a seasonal outdoor dining area and a downstairs cocktail bar, Shochu, named after a vodka-like distilled spirit. Must-try dishes include inch-thick scallops in wasabi cream, black cod dumplings, and Korean-spiced lamb cutlets from the grill.
