    Awesome imported Japanese beer selection. Which will go great with a crazy milk. Tako wasabi is always good. These are the coolest bartenders I know. All of them.

    Check out the Japanese beers in the fridge. Order two and make sure to drink em out of the shot glasses they offer. Then ask Nick behind the bar to queue up some Journey... and break shit!

    Get a corner booth and try the sake sampler to figure out what kind you like the best. Your bill will add up pretty fast so be prepared.

    Came with high hopes and was let down. The dried octopus lacks flavor, the tuna tartar was mediocre and the beer was warm. The place is cozy and the Korean beef was good. You can do better, though.
