Ichiban is a real favorite. The best restaurants are those embraced by their neighborhoods and this one almost always filled with locals, multi-generational families, hipsters and suits. Family Style Korean BBQ – there are a few tables where with open grills in the center so you can BBQ your food right there. It’s the coolest. The menu is split Japanese and Korean, so you can focus on one cuisine or mix and match.  P.S. If you’re from the Hartford area you may remember way back when Ichiban was a Friendly’s.
