East Village
Follow your nose into this East Village eatery for one of nine variations on classic Japanese curry—a milder, sweeter riff on the Indian dish. The restaurant’s signature gravy—rich, thick and not overly spicy—arrives bubbling in a cast-iron pot, with your choice of protein (try beautifully caramelized chicken or succulent panko-crusted pork cutlet). All variations feature the same traditional condiments of raisins, shallots, dried onions, pickled radish and rice pressed into a ring mold to form a well for the sauce. Pink grapefruit Jell-O is the lone dessert, but an after-dinner Sapporo works just as well.
