Global boundaries are ignored at this Japanese-owned small plates spot in the East Village. The small subterranean space only sits about 25 people, both at a large communal table and along the bar. Clean and contemporary is the look here with white leather stools, long silvery mirrors and tasteful pots filled with green plants. Chef Takanori Akiyama thinks up some pretty inventive dishes: miso-marinated foie gras served with duck miso over daikon, sea urchin scrambled egg topped with caviar and a gorgonzola brulee kissed with honey. Straight-up Asian dishes like steamed buns filled with pork belly and calf liver sashimi are listed alongside Italian-influenced dishes like a Bolognese made with Colorado lamb. The wine list is similarly eclectic, including about an equal mix of Italian, French and New World wines by the bottle and glass. Stop in for happy hour from opening to 8pm on Sundays through Thursdays and get all glasses of wine and sake for 50 percent off.—Keith Wagstaff
