About izanami

izanami is an izakaya serving upscale japanese bar food. Small plates meant for sharing, creatively prepared locally-sourced meat and produce with an emphasis on seasonality, all accompanied by unique libations.

Don't expect the usual. There is NO SUSHI (we're a thousand miles from the ocean). No soggy tempura. Definitely none of the sickly-sweet, hot sake that has given sake such a bad rap.

We have the best selection of artisanal microbrew cold sake found anywhere between the coasts, green teas from shizuoka, locally roasted coffee drinks, ten different japanese craft beers, and housemade spritzers.

Experience the pyrotechnics of our charcoal grill at the counter or choose a custom-made, private booth, a cozy table for two, floor seating in the tatami room, or a chair at the communal table. Views across the valley make ours the best patio in Santa Fe.
