Ginza Restaurant Review: Ginza izakaya is a little hard to find but well worth the search. Friends gather to share the teppan jumbo gyoza (pork dumplings) and the miso-marinated sea bass. The izakaya list has something for everybody, from the yamaimo (mountain yam) to the chicken karaage and the seafood dynamite. You might want to try one of the shooters, too: uni, oyster, quail egg or the combo. But don’t stop there. Among the sushi offerings, the Ventana special is named for the canyon at the end of the road. Inside this roll you’ll find kani kama, avocado and cucumber, while on the outside is yellowtail, uni, ikura and masago. Presentation is artful and the beer is cold.
