    We really enjoyed 1 or 8. Not cheap, but quite fabulous. I can't speak to any others in the hood.

      Agree -- 1 or 8 is delicious and great for a party of your size, too -- it has really nice, big booths.

        1 or 8 is really the only choice. Zenkichi is really good, but I do not even know if they have a "booth" that large. Zenkichi is a really quirky menu.
