We stumbled upon Edobox on Main St. because its patio extends into the street with little hanging lanterns up above that apparently double as people magnets. And now that we’ve had a couple meals here, it’s where we’d eat every Friday night if we were allowed to be lazy and predictable. The thing to order here is bento boxes - there are a few options, but all of them come with spicy cucumber salad, edamame, fried rice, delicious beef dumplings, and some sort of protein like baked cod or chicken karaage. Each partition is excellent, but you don’t need to order one box per person. Instead, order one for every two or three people, and supplement with sushi and sashimi (we like the chu-toro nigiri and the hamachi appetizer). Sip beer and sake, and enjoy the people-watching just steps from the beach.
