This very American restaurant has chosen Japanese teriyaki as its province, serving it up as nicely grilled chicken, hanger steak, salmon, pork loin, or tofu, drizzled with a thin brown glaze. Not a bad idea, though the chicken works much better than the hanger steak. The platter comes with a nicely dressed small salad, lots of white rice, and sesame seeds sprinkled over a generous serving of teriyaki. This is stick-to-your-ribs fare, so don’t expect culinary pyrotechnics. Actually, the sides are a little more exciting than the main courses at this thimble-size place with minimum seating: soba noodle salad, fried gyoza, and shishito peppers.
