Izakaya Kou serves a mix of sushi, tempura, and yakitori, all of which is under $20. Their private side rooms are perfect for groups and you get to sit on pillows on the floor while you eat. It’s a good weeknight dinner spot if you live near by, or come here before a show at The Fillmore when you want some solid Japanese food.
