Takashi Restaurant Review

: Talented chef Takashi Inoue brings the cuisine of his native Osaka to New York City and manages to impress adventurous and not-so-adventurous palates along the way. Yakiniku is the focus, a Japanese version of Korean barbecue where diners cook various meats at a grill built into the table. The short rib and rib-eye are particularly tender and juicy; more daring eaters should opt for the sweetbreads as well as the beef belly. If the grill isn’t your thing, there are plenty of other delights, such as a foie gras-stuffed mini Kobe burger --- it arrives in a sizzling skillet wading in a hot pool of chocolate-barbecue sauce that adds layers of flavor to the dish. Beef liver and kidney pâté, spread on buttered toast, melts in the mouth, and the bone marrow crawfish dumplings are an inventive surf ‘n’ turf gem. There’s only one dessert: homemade Madagascar vanilla ice cream with a choice of half a dozen toppings (go for the salted caramel). Several wines and sakés are available, but the best beverage accompaniment is the draught Sapporo.
