Ichibantei

Earn 3X Points

Ichibantei is a casual Japanese restaurant that’s sort of hiding on 13th street right off of 1st Avenue. They serve comfort food like ramen, fried chicken, and donburi rice bowls, including something called Oyoko Don - an excellent stewy mixture of egg, chicken, and onion. This is a great late-night option (they stay open until 3am on weekdays and 4am on weekends), but you can also use Ichibantei for a laid-back date or a solo weeknight meal where you’ll be able to keep things under $30. Just know it’s cash only.
