San Francisco's Modern Japanese Izakaya, Pabu
Pabu is a modern Japanese izakaya. While many of Japan's izakayas are casual post-work dining scenes, San Francisco
's Pabu is a posh version serving traditional izakaya treats, like robota, alongside more inventive dishes like chawanmushi egg custard. Cozy up to the sushi bar for fish fresh from Tokyo
's Tsukiji market. That's tough to beat.
