This unassuming spot feels like a true Japanese izakaya—warm, friendly, and inexpensive. The small plates are delicious and shareable, making Ittoku a good choice for intimate groups. Yakitori skewers range from chicken to bacon-wrapped quail eggs. Hot plates run from the familiar (gyoza dumplings) to more exotic (grated Japanese yam, pond smelt fritter). You can even try beef stomach and intestines in a miso broth. The sushi and sashimi menu is fresh and straightforward. Complete the izakaya experience with a choice from the wide selection of sakes.
