Don't worry if you get a little lost trying to find this Japanese restaurant. The door blends right into the building's exterior wood paneling, and there's no sign (look for the red light instead). Once inside, you will feel miles away from the cracked, trash-strewn sidewalk outside. The entrance is a Zen oasis with a waterfall and quiet nook where you can mellow out while waiting for a table. Upstairs, the walkway is lined with curtained private booths (there's a call button if you need a refill on your sake). The menu is updated every six weeks to reflect what's fresh, and the excellent izakaya-style dishes are for adventurous eaters. Tempura cod milt (fried fish sperm) is an early spring favorite, and the bonito shuto (a.k.a. cured fish innards) even comes with a warning of intense flavor and saltiness. The eight-course omakase menu is well worth the price.—Danielle Contray

Open Wednesdays through Saturdays 6 pm to midnight, Sundays 5:30 pm to 11:30 pm.
