This place provided a great experience and a wonderful dinner (and drinks!). We were here on a Monday evening without a reservation. We arrived at 5:25 pm and were asked to wait on the bench in the hallway (very comfy, we met some other out-of-towners there!).
I loved that we were asked to remove our shoes and put them in the "shoe locker." Our table was suitable for Japanese style or, for us, the floor below the table allowed for our legs (but we were definitely sitting low!)
We went with the five favorites plus sashimi. All was amazing, and starts with a delicious complimentary green salad. Our waitress was friendly and helpful -- she suggested a sake for this newbie (started with a "U" can't remember the name) and it was so smooth and delicious. The mackerel was a treat -- be prepared for table flames! The entire service was served "tapas" style -- a little now, a little later. Perfect.
The atmosphere is lofty warm industrial (does that make sense?) and knowing you are underground adds to the drama. The kitchen is open behind the bar seating, and you can tell that the staff here really loves what they do. Just enough chatter and excitement but not so much to kill table conversation.
Love love love. Go.
