New Izakaya (pronounced as "ee-ZAH-ka-ya")
style dishes and seating has been designed by Jimmy. Similar to
appetizers, Izakaya style lets you choose among many smaller dish items
from homemade gyoza and homemade vegetable spring rolls to edamame and
An izakaya is a type of Japanese drinking
establishment which also serves food to accompany the drinks. The food
is usually more substantial than those offered in other types of
drinking establishments in Japan such as bars.
Izakaya's are traditional Japanese taverns
or pubs where businessmen go for a drink or quick meal after work.
Portions are smaller, and less expensive. The idea is to choose two or
three at a time with a glass or two of Japanese beer, sake or green tea.
The name "izakaya" means "i (to remain)"
and "sakaya" (sake shop). The Japanese word originates from sake shops
which allowed customers to remain on the premises to drink.
Izakaya are sometimes called Akach'chin
(red lantern) in daily conversation, because these paper lanterns are
traditionally found in front of an izakaya.
Jimmy redesigned a portion of the
restaurant to be more similar to the Izakaya look- where booths are
separated by walls and an overhang.
This provides more privacy, in a more traditional Japanese dining environment.
In addition to the Izakaya menu, new
signature Japanese dishes are available with Jimmy's specially made
teriyaki and spicy sauces.
