Informal enough to offer a delivery service, upmarket enough to provide valet parking, Inari is a popular, expectation-defying sushi joint. Despite some wildly retro styling details – 1950s diner-style seating, parasol- and rose-shaped pendant lighting – it somehow works. Bestsellers include the tangy ponzu-marinated salmon sashimi and the duck tataki with tofu purée, crispy garlic and onion, along with tempura dishes and innovative sushi options galore. There’s a small chef’s table – the place to try the 20-course tasting menu – and the restaurant’s cocktail game is strong.
