POW! Here we are puttin’ a late night feed on in midtown Manhattan, but it feels like we have traveled to Tokyo. This rockin’ joint is called Aburiya Kinnosuke. . .mmm, aaaahh!!. . .a classic izakaya restaurant that serves up tons of tasty small plates of grilled meats, fresh and creamy uni from both Japan and California–jaaa!!, eggs, fried chicken, salads, veggies, etc., and all of it is washed down with tasty-dry-cold sake–most wonderful! The vibe here is totally transporting–it feels like a real Tokyo establishment with its walled-in dining tables, bamboo and wood decor, dark lighting, soothing staff, and partially open kitchen–hai!!
This is a perfect place to hit after a night of theater over on Broadway. . .you can simply walk out of your theater on W. 45th Street, slip away from all of the people hailing cabs, stroll east past Times Square, past Fifth Avenue, and keep walking until you see the small sign marking the entrance on E. 45th Street between Second and Third Avenues. . .enter, pop down the stairs, and get ready for some real tasty Japanese grub served up in a cozy setting–no passport needed. I love gobbling at Aburiya Kinnosuke, and you will too if you ever find yourself looking for a great Japanese experience in midtown Manhattan.
I send you zen-like vibes from midtown. . .feel them. . .they are good for you.
