Whaling In Oklahoma

This Japanese-inspired spot in the South End is has been packed on the weekends since it opened. The crowds , sharable plates, and small but interesting cocktail menu make or a fun night, even if the dining room is weirdly bright. The snacks and vegetable small plates are the best part of the menu (the miso glazed eggplant will remind you good eggplant can be if you’ve forgotten) and, while some of the larger dishes are misses and don’t actually seem all that sharable, you’ll find some you like (for us it was the hamachi with rhubarb).
