The people from Far Bar, our Little Tokyo dive bar staple, also run this izakaya that specializes in sake and Japanese craft beer. Most people in this bright space are there with friends, drinking sake on tap or in flight, or trying something from the big beer selection. If you’re hungry, stick with the karaage or raw bar stuff.
