Specializing in fish caught just hours before it's served, Yanmo is tucked away in a basement in the trendy Aoyama shopping district, offering counter seating in front of the grill, traditional low-tables on a raised wooden platform, and a private room in the back. Salted mackerel and grilled salmon are two of the most popular dishes, but the menu changes according to the daily catch. Lunch time can get crowded, and after work the crowd consists of young singles enjoying sake at the bar.
