This newcomer to Baldwin Village’s cute strip of rowhouse restaurants has won a legion of ardent fans with its Japanese-Korean izakaya-style bar snacks. Chef-owner Edward Bang has Michelin training (he’s worked the vaunted kitchens at NYC's Eleven Madison Park and Blue Hill at Stone Barns), but his food isn’t the least bit pretentious. Of the 10 temaki (hand rolls) on offer, the Hokkaido Scallop with compressed green apple and crème fraîche is a standout. Hot plates like chanterelle-cheddar croquettes or eight-spice deep-fried chicken demand a sake chaser.
