MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

This smart izakaya is the stateside outpost of a well-known and beloved restaurant group—renowned for serving tiger blowfish and other such derring-do. Dishes here may be decidedly more tame, but Wokuni is a welcome arrival for adventurous locals craving sushi, skewers and other bites. The menu’s broad reach focuses on nicely crafted sashimi, such as buri (seasonal yellowtail) arranged with little more than a pinch of wasabi, as well as cooked items like corn tempura. Grilled offerings include black cod marinated in saikyo miso, yakitori and washu sirloin flambéed with brandy. The dining room features small booths, dark tables and a popular bar area. It combines the soothing colors often used in Japanese restaurants with an edgier, industrial look.
