When you want top tier Japanese comfort food in a casual setting, make a reservation at Hibino in Cobble Hill. The room has minimal decor and lots of little tables, and it’s quiet enough for an actual conversation. This izakaya does everything well, from the rotating daily selection of obanzai and sushi specials to house-made tofu and tonkatsu. Even the chicken teriyaki here is excellent and will remind you why this dish was really, really popular a few decades back. In addition to the special sushi menu, they also serve salmon, tuna, and anago hako sushi, as well as a full menu of rolls and nigiri.
