kodō@Arts District ★★★

Fantastic New Izakaya Restaurant. Hidden gem in the Arts District. Only opened for 4 weeks. Love all the food. Could get pricey. Premium Trio Handroll is expensive ($60), but it's worth a try. Shark's Heart was very special. It tasted like Chicken Sashimi, which was great with its texture. Monkfish Karaage was moist and soft with the perfect flavor. The Shiso Gelato tasted like Green Tea Ice Cream. Great cocktails. Probably can't go wrong with any cocktails there. Great service. Dinner only. Arrived 30 minutes before our 6:00pm reservation but still got seated. Have outdoor, indoor bar, and indoor booth seating. Arrive early. Street parking could be a bit challenging in the busy area. Reservations made via Resy.
