What is an Izakaya? In Japanese, "iru" means "stay" and "sakaya" means "sake shop." So the direct translation of this word is "staying at sake shop." Back in the Edo period, sake shops started to serve shoppers sake and some quick snacks. It caught on and they started calling these special sake shops "izakaya" to differentiate from regular sake shops. Now the shop part of izakaya is almost gone in Japan. What remains is a very casual drinking and eating place, just like an enoteca in Italy, serving tapas style food that's meant to be shared among friends while enjoying drinks rather than traditional dinner plates. So order up a beer, look over the menu and stay awhile.

Here at Kimoto we bring you the highest quality and freshest fish we can. You will find fish and Japanese food that you cannot find anywhere near us, items such as Chūtoro or fatty tuna, Wagyu beef, Ankimo or monkfish liver, and Mirugai or elephant clam which can grow up to 6 and a half feet long.  Always look to our special board, or ask you server what’s on special.


If you are feeling adventurous try our traditional style “Omakase” (OH-MA-KAZE) meaning"I'll leave it to you" or chef’s choice.  This style of dining essentially offers the sushi chef the choice of what to serve you based on what he feels best represents his skills, while using the freshest fish that is available today based on a fixed set price. Expect the chef to be innovative and surprising in the selection of dishes. The meal can be likened to an artistic performance by the chef.
