The Izakaya is an electrifying underground bar that transports guests to post-war black market Tokyo. Surrounded by vintage street signs, Japanese lanterns, and no more than a few dozen seats, browse a pub-style menu and an extensive selection of cocktails, sakes, and Japanese whiskey.

Can’t quite find it? Izakaya is located underneath Chef Gene Kato’s Momotaro, her older, more refined sister restaurant.
