Cool and unpretentious. Great for Ramen and other casual Asian fare. I love the roasted shoshito peppers and roasted edamame as noshies with cocktails. Great tuna tatami and roasted russell sprouts. A little loud. So, factor that in if you are hoping for cozy conversation.

This houses a multitude of cafes and mongers. A good place to go with a group as everyone can roam around and find what they want and then sit together. Try the Ono Poke and the Eli's Jerusalem. Also great homemade Latin ice cream stand with interesting original flavors. Very casual. If its nice, take it out on the patio in the back.

Fantastic for upscale Asian. Great sushi, ramen, dumplings, etc. Wonderful atmosphere. Owners, Bert and Sam are always on the premises making sure your experience is top notch. There may be an hour or more wait for a table, unless it is a football Saturday. i suggest you go early, get on the list, then stroll down to Pale Eddies pour house for a drink while you wait on their call.

Fantastic latin fare, good bar, fun casual atmosphere. Moderate prices, great quality. You will likely have to wait for a table unless you go early. I suggest a grapefruit margarita at the bar to pass the time.
