If you like Japanese food and are visiting Boston, stop in at Itadaki for lunch or dinner. Excellent innovative sushi, fresh ingredients and a friendly atmosphere. In addition, they serve good beers and a variety saki.

At this Japanese izakaya "gastro-pub" we had small plates and sushi. It's meant to be a casual eating and drinking place which you'd find in Japan. The owner is from Osaka which is a pleasant surprise. We found the fish fresh but the service was...More

Itadaki is a Japanese Izakaya (the Japanese version of a Gastropub) located on Boston's famous Newbury Street. We specialize in Izakaya-style small plates for sharing (similar to Tapas) and we also have popular Japanese items such as Ramen and Sushi. In our beautiful full bar, along with an extensive drink list, we have a unique selection of Japanese Beers and Whiskeys, a large Sake list as well as New England's largest Shochu selection. For weekend afternoons, American-style brunch items, such as Omelets and French Toast are served, along with Lattes and Mimosas.
