To enter Karasu, you walk into Walter’s, go through the restaurant, and head to a door in the back similar to another beloved and secret Japanese restaurant, Bohemian. You’ll be rewarded with some all-star talent: Thomas Waugh, of ZZ’s Clam Bar fame, is the head bartender, and Shuko alum Yael Peet is the chef. Karasu is neither a sushi restaurant nor an izakaya more of a casual neighborhood spot and the menu includes duck wings, uni tagliatelle, and kampachi crudo.
