Small, intimate and informal, Qoo Robata is a Japanese pub-style venue that serves great sake and meals that fall somewhere between snacks and main courses. Places like this—called _izakaya_—are increasingly common in Manhattan and, with this Brooklyn establishment, obviousl are stretching into the outer boroughs as well.
Dishes may be small but the menu is extensive, and it’s best to share a selection to ensure you experience the range of interesting fare on offer such as diced octopus, quail eggs wrapped in bacon and rice porridge. The beverages are just as enthralling as the food, with 12 different sakes, Japanese beer and other exotic liqueurs and spirits available to order. Lounge at the bar and watch the chef at work, or retire to a booth for a cozier plot in this Japanese culinary free-for-all.
