A special oyster appetizer was a knockout: three delicate kumamotos doused with light and citrusy ponzu sauce and strewn with pickled daikon. This Japanese restaurant is the cousin to First Avenue stalwart Sapporo East. For chilly nights try oden;a steaming broth of tofu, fish cake, boiled egg, radish, and a translucent loaf of devil's tongue starch. Stir in the hot mustard! For greatest contrast, pick zaru soba, buckwheat noodles served on a bed of ice cubes and crowned with crisp shredded nori.
