the name of that Times Sq. Izakawa that the NYT reviewed (and how is it)?
Aburiya Kinnosuke? I actually went there this weekend and I recommend sitting by the bar. Theres an authentic feel to this place. Its a very small restaurant but nobody spoke louder than they were supposed to - voices were kept low. Service was discreet and excellent. Food was delicious - but you must be a fish lover to enjoy it as most of the grill menu was fish parts odd and ends..actually alot of what we ordered was just that. Just go!
