Aburiya Kinnosuke launched in June of 2005 as the very first robata grill, high-end izakaya restaurant in New York City. They deliver the authentic taste of Japan, serving fresh fish, Wagyu beef, sake and shochu. It's one of Manhattan's most reputable Japanese restaurants, bustling during lunch when it's brimming with homesick Tokyo natives. You can expect to enjoy the tastiest traditional treats, like homemade tofu and tsukune (chicken meatballs), which are best when slathered with teriyaki sauce. Bar seating is spacious while the dining tables are semi-private separated by stylish curtains.
