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 nigiri sushi. No soggy tempura. Definitely none of the sickly-sweet, hot sake that has given sake such a bad rap. We are extremely selective about our purveyors and only order enough seafood and organic produce to get us through the day.

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

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 Chef's Counter, get first-hand info on our sake from the bartender at the High Bar, or choose a custom-made private booth, a cozy table for two, or floor seating in the tatami room. Views across the valley make ours the best patio in Santa Fe.
