With only 24 seats, intimate dining takes on new meaning at Donguri. Abounding with charm amid exposed brick walls, chef Hitoshi Kagawa’s kitchen delivers the delectable cuisine of Japan’s Kansai region on handsome, handmade tableware. Consider the brilliant tasting menu. (The New York Times also praised several of the individual dishes.) Advance reservations are a must.
