Robatta had great food, different and inventive. At one point they stopped serving lunch then they closed all together replaced by a diner/bar. Oddly enough it's attached to a strip club with a secret door to get in there assuming that door made it through the renovation.
Robata: A Rustic Japanese grilling technique originating from the country farmhouses of Japan; our chefs attentively grill over charcoal to maintain precise temperatures, constantly tending the grill to achieve perfection-Robata embodies what authentic Japanese food is all about.
Like New York nightlife, Mr. Robata mixes fine ingredients with expert technique. Our chef gracefully integrates the theory of Japanese Kaiseki with his French restaurant experience, imbuing each dish with the subtlety of Japan and the bold sauces of storied French cuisine.
