japanese izakaya-type place: some sushi, some tempura, some donburi

am planning to try it myself, but was wondering what other hounds had to say about it.

  1. It is fairly standard Japanese/sushi. Nothing special, not bad. Good for after a movie. I wouldn't go out of my way to go there. Haven't been in a while but I think I recall that some of the noodle dishes are interesting. I think the sushi was the weakest part of the menu.

    1. I like Dan. I particularly like their Yakisoba and the bento box lunches are a fine deal. I do agree the sushi may be the weakest part of the menu but their other itmes, like the noodles, are good. It's been there for so many years and I've never been disappointed.

      1. I'm with pcwd. Dan is a standard-issue, old-school Japanese restaurant. It's the definition of average. But Dan is a place with little pretension -- it is unambitious, comfortable, and amiable.

        1. I concur with pcwd & Dave. It's not bad, but I only go if I want a reasonably priced dinner near Lincoln Center.
