In Japan, izakaya is a type of drinking establishment which serves small food dishes akin to a Spanish tapas place. They are popular as after-work hang out places.
Soon, Smith Street is going to have its very own Izakaya. It is going to open at 176 Smith Street, between Warren and Wyckoff Streets.
The owner, who showed me the new space, told me that they will have a full sake bar as well as sushi, yakitori and noodle dishes.
Sounds great, right?
