Best New Japanese-American: Hinoki + the Bird
The menu at Hinoki + the Bird isn't technically just Japanese, but it does feature dishes like Asian-slanted beef tartare with parmesan and quail eggs, and duck with soba noodles, warm dashi broth, and tokyo negi. There might be more authentic sushi and sake spots around town, but this place should still be your new go-to for upscale Japanese-inspired fare.
