The chefs at Izakaya Nin cook authentic Japanese barbecue, stir-fry, and noodle dishes or eschew heat altogether to craft a bevy of sushi, sashimi, and specialty rolls. Whether dining during lunch or dinner, guests can acquaint taste buds with Japanese starters such as miso soup ($2.50) or seaweed salad ($4.50) before chopsticking a duo tuna nigiri ($4.50). The Sunrise roll distinguishes itself from a lineup of more than 35 specialty rolls with smoked salmon and tempura asparagus wrapped in cream cheese and soy paper ($9). For stir-fried fare, a platter of beef yakimeshi ($8.50) sizzles like a firecracker trapped in a heating blanket, and the medley veggies intertwined in a jungle of Tokyo yakisoba noodles untangles in puzzle solving mouths ($7). Dinnertime guests can also sample more than 15 yakitori skewers grilled over charcoals with offerings of tori-momo chicken ($2.50), pork ($3), or a whole squid ($9.50). During lunch, bento boxes ($10–$12) come stocked with all necessary meal components including a meat of choice, a california roll, vegetable tempura, and a grandmother armed with a wet nap.
Izakaya Nin's dining room exudes a casual vibe with faux tiled roofs perched above intimate booths and a sushi bar that shields fresh salmon form the tell-tale marks of roving grills.
