Inakaya is a fairy solid Midtown Japanese offering, which is surprising given its proximity to the theatre district and its size. For some reason, Japanese restaurant imports that wouldn't be caught dead serving sushi seem obliged to do so in the US, because that's what diners expect (it's like going to an Italian restaurant and not finding red sauce. Horrors!). In any event, Inakaya would be a better place if it focused on traditional robatayaki offerings and dropped the theatrics and distracting floor show. And I would go back (and have been back) -- the button on the NYMAG review module appears to be broken.
