Sharaku is set squarely in a part of the East Village favored by young Japanese expatriates. Its attentive preparations make life all the more pleasant for the patrons—and for their fellow NYU dorm residents across the street. A Sea Vegetable salad features seven kinds of seaweed drizzled with a miso vinegar dressing; the deep-fried Thunder roll, is chock full of with eel, crab stick, avocado and mint leaf. Also nicely turned out are staples like soba, udon, and rib eye teriyaki. Arty tree trunk coatracks and dual hanging panels help reduce the towering ceilings to a human scale. To rise above the riffraff, take the staircase leading to a second, loft-like dining space emblazoned with a colorful wall-length print of one fire-eyed dragon.Specials
