Zen Box Izakaya is a laid-back spot in Downtown East where you should sip a shochu highball and snack on some N.H.K. (Nippon hot karaage) with housemade gochu sauce. Although it’s within walking distance of downtown’s sports and music venues, dinner here feels like you’re settling in at your favorite neighborhood diner, especially considering that there’s usually a seat or two at the bar that’s set aside for walk-ins. 

Order the tonkotsu ramen made with a heritage pork broth, and definitely check out the vegan options—there’s always a great brothless vegan ramen on the menu, plus vegan yakisoba available from Tuesdays through Thursdays. Finish off with the green tea tiramisu made with matcha-soaked ladyfingers.
