A very authentic Japanese restaurant located on the second floor. It's extremely loud and there is a lot drinking going on here. It's a party place. When we arrived there were a ton of empty tables. The host insisted we waited with a group of...More

It is a great and authentic place. The majority of the clients are from japan. They have a very large and interesting menu. Seafood, sushi, dumplings, noddles and atipical cuts of meat. Really recomendable.

Yes, you do feel transposed to a little alley around Shinjuku station in Tokyo. Typical Izakaya with fried goods off the griddle (yakitori). The highlight for me was definitely the yaki-onigiri (grilled rice ball), something that is hard to find outside Japan. Sapporo on tap,...More

If you want to understand the non-sushi side of everyman, Japanese cuisine, Yokocho is a great starting place. this is not fussy gourmet fare, this is terrific comfort food. and for a bonus the wonderful Angel Share bar shares the upstairs space.

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
