Domo doesn’t just serve exemplary Japanese meals such as udon and grilled squid; it puts you in the Land of the Rising Sun with a flourishing Japanese garden and traditional Japanese service. The off-the-beaten-path restaurant consistently wins this category with its authentic dishes (we particularly like anything on the sashimi donburi side of the dinner menu) and a dining room—and stellar patio—that whisks us to the Japanese countryside. The 15 varieties of to-go bento boxes especially deserve an “arigato.”
