Izanami is an izakaya serving upscale japanese bar food. Small plates meant for sharing, creatively prepared locally-sourced meat and produce with an emphasis on seasonality, all accompanied by unique libations. Don’t expect the usual. There is no nigiri sushi. No soggy tempura. Definitely none of the sickly-sweet, hot sake that has given sake such a bad rap. They are extremely selective about their purveyors and only order enough seafood and organic produce to get them through the day. Most of our beef is wagyu. It’s possibly the most delicious meat you will ever eat. They have the best selection of artisanal microbrew cold sake found anywhere between the coasts, green teas from shizuoka, locally roasted coffee drinks, ten different japanese craft beers, and housemade spritzers.
