This Downtown spot, which is part of a Japan-based franchise, is all about hidden recesses, from washitsu -- matt-covered rooms where you don slippers and sit on the floor -- to booths with curtains. Try the seared tuna carpaccio with ponzu dressing and spicy mayo or anything from the robata grill, especially the saba (seared mackerel).
