Ebisu

Smart Dining—Japanese

Ebisu has had a very fine refurbishment, the interior now moody and seductive, with brown and dark blue hues. Finer still is its food — an izakaya-style menu of sharing plates perfect for a large group. If you’re eating small, be sure to get the karaage chicken in a light, soy and spring onion broth, or any of the rolled sushi plates. If you’re in for the night, simply choose the tasting menu and allow head chef Fred Wong to send plate after plate of the freshest sashimi and precision-cut meats to your table. The floor, helmed by Wayne Shennen, runs like clockwork. It is busy at Ebisu, but never tense. In fact, dining here is some of the most fun you can have eating out.
