Sashimi and Sake
Bonten finds the sweet spot between traditional and contemporary, maintaining an evocative Japanese exterior while incorporating a modern sign with an English translation of its name. It’s a welcome to sight to any tourists looking for authenticity, but who don’t want to risk being turned away at the door!

A traditional izakaya with a contemporary twist, Bonten provides a sumptuous selection of traditional Japanese fare, from sake to sashimi to charcoal-grilled meats. Sitting at your chabudai (a low table that requires the use of cushions rather than chairs), Bonten provides you with an assuredly grown-up, truly Japanese experience that you won’t be forgetting in a hurry. Don’t be alarmed by the chic, upmarket exterior — Bonten is surprisingly affordable and frequently has food-and-drink deals that are sure to allay your anxiety.
