Sets classically grounded Japanese fare against the Granville Street vibe. The interior is all warmth and clean lines: dark, rustic wood accented by a backlit washi paper wall and a striking wave-formation sculpture. The menu focuses on izakaya-style small plates like barbecue back ribsÑperhaps the best barbecue you’ll ever eat, succulent and fall-off-the-bone tender. Inventive sushi creations include the Roulette roll: spicy chopped scallop, avocado, and cucumber topped with negitoro and lotus-root chips, accented by a dramatic stripe of nori soy sauce. Pair spectacularly fresh sashimi with a selection from the impressive sake list, or soar with a tasting flight of three.
