Riki is a casual Japanese restaurant with a giant menu that has everything from sashimi to okonomiyaki and skewered meats. It’s a good option if you’re meeting a friend for something low-key and want to split everything - or if you want to eat alone at the sushi bar (where they sometimes show videos of cats doing stupid things on the TV screens).

Sakagura is an izakaya-style Japanese restaurant that’s hidden in the basement of a very normal Midtown office building.
