Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

It’s easy to mistake Chiyono’s tiny windowfront—on Sixth Street—for another twinkling-light, curry-row joint. Once inside, however, baby pink walls and chocolate brown wooden slats make for a serene, home-style Japanese dining retreat. Chef-owner Chiyono Murano’s cuisine gracefully blends bold and subtle flavors. A tangy potato salad was sweetened only with raisins. A simple avocado salad was scented only with olive oil and pillow-soft strands of hijiki seaweed. The most exquisite dish we tried was tender fillets of fried cod dipped in a savory batter of egg and Japanese Worcestershire. You can pair your meal with something from the wine, beer or sake list, but we like the invigoratingly icy, home-brewed green tea best.
