Gourmands and people who know Japanese food best love this tiny (it has only a few tables) Japanese restaurant. There's nothing pompous about Jin Kichi, and nobody dresses up to come here. Instead, it's a peaceful, quiet place to spend time with friends and family. The restaurant prides itself on robatayaki, a barbecue-like method of cooking popular in northern Japan.

We recommend: In addition to the old standards, sushi and sashimi, it's worth trying dishes prepared on the robata grill.

Cuisine: Japanese/traditional

Atmosphere: authentic

The crowd: gourmands, Japanese people

Key info: The restaurant is extremely small and cramped, but the food is divine. We recommend reserving a table in advance.
