I've just moved the other way. As a former Angeleno I'll follow everyone else in recommending Gaja, but could you tell me where to go in NY? I could really use some good okonomiyaki out here. Thanks!
I've had it at Otafuku on 9th between Stuyvesant and 2nd, and at Village Yokocho on Stuyvesant, and liked the Otafuku version a bit better. Although lately I've been making my own...after going to one of the okonomiyaki speciality places in Osaka it become more obvious that it's pretty simple.
I've had it at Oh! Taisho and Yakitori Taisho on St. Marks Place several times and thought it was good, but I'm not really a connoisseur so not sure how it stacks up to other NY versions.
There is restaurant on Flatbush Avenue in Park Slope Brooklyn called Geido... they have a a delicious okinomiyaki. I remember the first time seeing it ordered by an older Japanese couple and and now have it almost every time I dine here. The sushi and other dishes are lovely as well. A good little find. Easily accessible by subway from Manhattan.
