TATLER TIPS

Helmed by Chef Hi­toshi Sasagawa, a pro­tégé of Iron Chef chal­lenger Tadamichi Ota, Sasagawa of­fers a rel­a­tively con­cise menu that ze­roes in on tra­di­tional Ja­panese spe­cial­i­ties. While wine choices are un­der­stand­ably lim­ited, there is sake in abun­dance, and priced af­ford­ably, to boot

Try the day’s rec­om­men­da­tion plat­ter, which comes with plenty for three. The rock­fish is de­li­cious with its skin semi-torched, while the sea urchin comes cold, fresh and in a de­cent por­tion. Be sure to try the inaniwa udon, silky smooth wheat noo­dles cra­dled in a clear de­li­cious broth. Meat lovers will en­joy the mar­bling and rich tex­ture of the Kuroge Wagyu steak served on a tep­pa­nyaki hot plate.
