This Tokyo-style Izakaya spot is the most recent addition to Jason Atherton’s growing restaurant empire, which also happens to be perfect for the business lunches and dinners of its Clerkenwell denizens. Here, inside a lacy wooden structure that envelopes the space, everything from traditional rice bowls, to Tonkatsu, to their must-order tuna temaki is served up with an added dose of artistry on beautiful serve ware that appears designed for each individual dish. Aside from the cozy leather banquettes for intimate dinners, the best seats are at the bar, watching the action in the kitchen. Before or after the meal, head down to the bar for wabi-sabi inspired cocktails and a long list of sake to choose from.
