MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Guests ring a buzzer to gain access to this clandestine izakaya. Inside, you’ll find a stylish, serene cubby hole—reservations are a must on popular nights—where every point of your experience has been thoughtfully considered, from the two-person bar stools to the kimono-clad servers with answers at the ready. Two chefs perform their magic in view: one works the grill station while the other tackles sashimi and steamed dishes. A small kitchen in the back pushes out occasional items as well. The menu offers barbecue dishes, robata specials, as well as other seasonal delights. But you’ll have the most fun ordering a little of everything—each new presentation is truly an artful revelation. Housed just down the block, Azasu is the modern and much loved sibling.
