Have gotten addicted to Izakaya style japanese food from frequent visits to vancouver this summer (and spending far too much time there at Happa Izakaya).
What are some of the best Izakaya places in manhattan to go? I understand a lot of them are in east village with a college crowd. However I'm looking for something more upscale/trendy like Happa.
Also, prefer downtown, below the 20s.
Any ideas? I can't fly 3000 miles every time I get a craving...
