Fodor's Expert Review Anzu
Avant-garde performances of live shamisen—an instrument similar to the banjo—by promising young performers and seasoned experts (every evening at 7 and 9) are the main attraction here. Arrive early to sit on cushions on the floor and enjoy the regional fare. Many items on the menu are incomprehensible even to native speakers, as they go by local names; if you are an adventurous diner, point and anticipate.
