Zutto, the friendly vibe remains, but the menu has been totally upgraded to cater to the sophisticated tastes of today. The streamlined space now holds a grand communal table, perfect for experiencing the new pub fare and other Asian specialties. I got to have an extensive sampling of Chef Josh Smookler’s new menu, and I was totally wowed! Whether you want to warm up with a generous serving of top-notch ramen, snack on tasty hirata buns with decadent slabs of short rib, pork belly, or kobe beef, (also portobella and tuna), or just cut into a juicy steak frites, you will not be disappointed. Get to this spot before everyone else hears about it! Photo above shows the Seafood Ramen, photo below the Portobella Hirata Buns. See more photos of our meal at this link, and do order dessert, if you are so inclined. I had a bite (or two) of all four, and especially loved the Fromage Blanc “Cheese Cake” with coconut milk and graham cracker.
