  • best izakaya-style Japanese food in the city
  • Delicioso. el naguro estupendo en Tartar
  • Underground bar that offers great soba without the pomp and circumstance.
  • Soba lunch sets are are a great deal!
  • Order the tuna tartar. It's amazing
  • They have magical toilets.
  • Try the Mango Pudding W/ Mixed Berries & Passionfruit Sorbet - Refreshing, sweet & tangy.
  • After walking into this basement eatery one Louis Vuitton Friend of the House swears shes in Japan. She loves the sake selection. Find out who at the LV Amble site.
  • Try one of the daily lunch specials, which are made in limited quantities of 30 orders or less. Diners with room for dessert may want black sesame crme brulee or coffee Jell-O.
  • You need to be in the know because its entrance is located in the basement of a nondescript Midtown office building, past the security desk and through a pristine white lobby.
  • Now I've seen all the Angels!
  • New $11.50 daily specials from 9/3-9/27/13. *Changes monthly. They have limited quantities so get there early (before 12pm to be safe). Enjoy! =)
  • "Uni heaven"
  • Onigiri covered in mackerel is gross! Don't get it. Chicken meatball and organic chicken + sea salt + yuzu citrus is good... All and all... Kinda meh
  • This charming izakaya is hidden in the basement of an office building. Dinner is great, order anything! And save room for black sesame creme brulee.
  • The black cod is amazing.
  • Amazing sake selection and the authentic food is great for a quick, casual lunch. We recommend the onsen tomago, sakagura special, and black sesame ice cream.
  • No cellphone signal or WiFi in there. It's a dead zone.
  • A taste of Tokyo is hidden in the basement of a Midtown East office building -- your friends will be impressed you found this place. Go for lunch and sake -- their platters are a multi-course steal.
  • Try some of their sake selection. Delicious. Chiquen karaage is amazing here.
