Westchester -- Authentic Japanese -- Hartsdale, NY -- Fujinoya
Fujinoya Restaurant just opened on Route 100 near the "Five Corners" intersection in Hartsdale, NY on Route 100 (the former "Texas Cowboy" place).
As someone who enjoys (and is always seeking) "real" Japanese cuisine, I highly recommend this place.
We are talking authentic Japanese, no fake Korean or Chinese imitations. No rainbow kitchen sink rolls.
But, if you want real Kitsune Udon for lunch, fabulous Battera (all flavors, with the clear seaweed topping), OMG simply unbelievable Bara-Chirashi, Shishamo every day, etc. etc., all at reasonable prices and with the expected Japanese style service, this is the place.
No liquor license, or credit cards, but Meijiya and the Japanese liquor (sake, awamori, plum wine, shochu) store are a half block away -- simply BYO.
In any event, please help this place stay in business. While the interior layout isn't the greatest, the service, food, and authenticity more than make up for anything else in Westchester. And, don't be afraid to order sushi just because there is no formal sushi bar.
Oh, speaking of authentic Japanese...., be sure to check out the bathroom. Apollo, launch control......
I completely agree! I've already dined here about 8 times since it opened. Its a great casual family restaurant! But totally authentic Japanese resturant!
I had dinner there on Friday night. The food was great! It's one of the few authentic Japanese restaurants in Westchester. They have some izakaya style dishes which cannot be found anywhere other than Manhattan restaurants. Some items are a bit pricey but then again, what's the price of quality and authenticity?? Cash only until they get their CC operating.
Don't have the new phone number, and they do not have lunch specials, although they have a less expensive lunch menu.
