"For a taste of after-dark Tokyo-style eating in New York, I often find myself at Hagi. Not only is it hidden down a set of stairs just off Times Square (and a couple of blocks from my restaurant Insieme) but it's also crowded with Japanese diners, which is always a good sign. I fill up on whole grilled sardines and meats served on skewers. Have an ice-cold mug of Sapporo. Or, they have a great selection of sake to wash it all down." —Chef Marco Canora
