Literally the best Japanese BBQ you could get. The seats are limited, come early or expect a long waiting. I recommend their Saki and pretty much every single dishes here.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

I don't remember remarked gluten free dishes that way. I'd rather call because the menu is pretty short (delicious, though)
