The best restaurants are embraced by their neighborhoods, and this one is almost always filled with locals, multi-generational families, hipsters, and suits. They do Japanese food and family-style Korean BBQ. You can request to sit at one of the tables with a small grill in the center and you can BBQ your food yourself. It’s the coolest.
