Inspired by the pubs of Tokyo, Robata Bar combines modern style and ancient practices. Our sultry, inviting setting centers around Robatayaki, a time-honored tradition of grilling skewers over an open flame and binchotan charcoal. This technique adds a smoky richness that intensifies the flavor of our premium meats, fish seafood and seasonal vegetables.
