Japanese Izakaya

  • 90

In the Mission District, guests enter a striking Japanese courtyard and wood-lined restaurant recalling Kyoto, Japan, to dine at Rintaro, serving classic izakaya and yakitori fare fused with California seasonality. Specialties include yakitori meats and vegetables from the grill as well as plates like housemade silken tofu in ume shoyu or whole-fried Petrale sole atop mustard greens. The bar pours sake, wine, Japanese beers and shochu cocktails like the Shoga Chu-Hai (ginger syrup, shochu, mint).
