Japanese Izakaya. A Tokyo Tavern by Chef Ryan Mateling Frame & FRAMEbar > > Japanese Izakaya. A Tokyo Tavern by Chef Ryan Mateling

In Japan, the Izakaya is a laidback drinking tavern that combines the coolness of a pub with modern interpretation of Japan’s most prized dishes. Think brilliant innovations like ‘Japanese Chicken Meatballs with Quail Yolk’; ‘ Yaki Bok Choy with Crunchy Quinoa and Bonito Flake Nori’; and ‘Robatayaki with Yuzu Grilled Scallops, Crab and Rice Paper.’ At our Frame tables, this crave-worthy creative Izakaya comes from the genius eye of Chef Ryan Mateling of AIKO Street Food.

And, speaking from experience : these tasty mouthfulls are best enjoyed with Frame’s Adam Accivatti‘s imaginative and precise spirits flowing from behind his marble bar.
