Sushi, ramen, gyoza, and other dishes all come together at one of the latest Fishtown concepts. The restaurant offers maki rolls, sashimi, and a menu of chirashi sushi that consists of fish over seasoned sushi rice with a variety of toppings, alongside starters, ramen, and a skewers menu with wagyu beef, octopus, and salmon. Down the line, you can expect the spot to open a 12-seat omakase offering for a more immersive option, but for now, ramen with pork belly can more than do the trick.

Izakaya by Yanaga technically opened last year, but the most important element of the restaurant only recently opened: the omakase counter. The twelve-seat dining room offers two seatings per night of a 25-course, $195 tasting menu, where you’ll use gold chopsticks to sample through a high-end, bite-by-bite exploration of Japanese cooking by chef Kevin Yanaga.
