Omori is a small, lively izakaya in Brookline Village. It’s right across the street from what is currently the only dispensary in Boston, but hold off on that until dessert, because the food here is good enough to be appreciated without performance enhancers. It’s far from the best Japanese place in Boston, but if you live nearby you should pop in a few times a year for sake and robata skewers.
