Shigezo Izakaya is a Japanese-style gastropub that has been open since 2010. Located in the heart of downtown, this spacious establishment seats 137, with outdoor seating available in the summer. In addition to the seats at the sushi counter and the teppan- and kushiyaki counter, Shigezo also offers multiple relaxed, spacious private rooms and booths. The woody interior is reminiscent of traditional Japanese-style housing, giving guests the opportunity to enjoy some time in a space that feels a lot like being in Japan.
On the menu, which is overseen by a head chef from Japan, you’ll find a lineup of rustic, traditional flavors, grounded in the classic recipes that define Japanese izakaya. One point of emphasis is that everything, including the tare sauces, soups, noodles and dressings, is homemade.

Shigezo’s popular Chan Chan Salmon is a local dish, noted for its homemade miso sauce, from Japan’s northern island of Hokkaido. It's no exaggeration to say that whenever the sound of the Chan Chan on the teppanyaki grill fills the room, cheers erupt. The Tokyo Ramen, meanwhile, has a light flavor, accompanied by the aroma of yuzu (an Asian citrus fruit). Depending on the specific dish, the homemade noodles in the ramen differ in thickness. For lunch, one popular choice is a combo featuring a small noodle dish, a curry, and a donburi rice bowl such as the Chirashi, which combines finely chopped seafood with eggs, nori, and more, in a bowl of sushi rice. The Today’s Fish Plate, a special centering on seasonal fish such as Japanese mackerel, also comes highly recommended. As for drinks, guests here can enjoy Japanese brands of sake, shochu (a Japanese spirit), whiskey, beer and more.

Shigezo Izakaya is part of a restaurant group that also includes Yataimura Maru, which makes Shigezo seem small by comparison; Izakaya Kichinto, which offers a full lineup of vegetarian and gluten-free fare; and Wa Kitchen Kuu, which is set to open in mid-October, 2017.
