Bar Futo doesn’t take itself too seriously. There’s a secret chicken menu and they serve up a Big Mac skewer to nod to the fact that their space used to be a former Five Guys. Generally, though, they do a lot of cooking over Japanese binchotan, whether it’s all kinds of skewers or small plates like charred shishitos with horseradish ranch and Maine uni with potato mochi. Go for one of their highballs from their short cocktail menu and learn about the Toki Highball machine that serves up Suntory whiskey with superpowered carbonated soda.
The place works for groups when you want to have a light dinner after dropping a ton of cash on seafood, or for a low-key date. Despite the fact that this space was once probably covered in peanut shells, now it's filled with cozy two tops and two different bar areas.
