Izakaya ida brings the casual gastropub scene of Japan to NYC with a focus on fresh and authentic Japanese plates (sans the exorbitant price tag) in an inviting and warm atmosphere.
Located in the heart of the Upper West Side [right off the 72nd St. stop] we offer a variety of classic izakaya cuisine:
❇ yakitori/yakiyasai (grilled meat/vegetables on skewers), grilling expertise perfected and passed on by our Japanese grill-master of 40 years experience,
❇ eleven savory ramen dishes in rich pork or sesame broth made from only natural and fresh ingredients, and
❇ wide selection of agemono (deep-fry).
To complement the diverse menu, we also serve over 20 different imported Japanese beer, sake, and Asian spirits.
After staying a while and enjoying a meal (or two!), we hope that you will leave our restaurant with a piece of Japan - and with your belly full and soul happy of course.
