We recently stopped in for a late birthday celebration. It has been over a year and Maru holds its own. Maybe it was the new sake menu, but my husband and I felt complete bliss at coming back to Maru. We got miso soup, gyoza,...More

I live in the neighborhood and there's nothing better than strolling over with the family for a nice Japanese dinner. My son always gets the sushi dinner; I go for the chicken teriyaki dinner, which is deliciious and, with the miso soup, salad, and tempura...More
