Izanami is upscale izakaya dining. Typical Japanese izakaya serve small plates in a casual atmosphere. Food is designed for sharing, normally ordered slowly, and comes from the kitchen when ready.

90% of our pork, chicken, wagyu beef, and produce is organic or sustainably raised by purveyors we know and trust. Some of our organic and local farmers and ranchers are Freshie's Farm, Romero Farms, Morgan Ranch, Urban Rebel Farms, and Mizayaki Wagyu. Fresh ingredients are emphasized in all our preparations. we make our own desserts, ice cream, and pickles in house.

Since we’re a thousand miles from the ocean, we are extremely selective about our purveyors and only order enough seafood to get us through the day. Seafood selection is highly curated for lunch and dinner. There is no nigiri sushi, an amazing chirashizushi is available at lunch and super fresh sashimi is available for lunch daily and often for dinner.

All our beef is either Nebraska or Miyazaki wagyu. It's possibly the most delicious meat you will ever eat. Click this link to learn everything you need to know about wagyu

Many items on the menu are gluten free and there are generally up to twenty vegetarian items at dinner. We're one of the few restaurants in the Southwest to offer shabu shabu--Japanese hot pot--great for carnivores and vegetarians. Please inform your server of any dietary restrictions.
