About the restaurant
Toraji is a “yakiniku” style BBQ restaurant.

Since our first shop has been established in 1995 in Tokyo, Ebisu area, we came a long way.

Starting with “namuru” and “kimchi” Korean style steamed and pickeled vegetables, continuing with tongue, ribs and/or outside skirt, finishing with cold noodles or “pibimpab” Korean style mixed rice bowl. We are commited to provide you the “yakiniku” you want for the days you feel like having a “yakiniku”.

We as pros won`t do any compromise in terms of ingredients, taste or service, Toraji will continue to promote the right way the yakiniku culture, bringing taste, happiness and health to our customers.

This is the best drag show. I take friends anytime they are in town. Servers are great and the food is amazing considering it’s a drag brunch. I highly recommend.

Great service. We had a reservation for the second seating and were able to drop off a bottle of sake to be chilled prior to our seating. The chef also made some accommodations for those at the seating who didn’t like Cilantro, which was nice for a tasting menu. Courses were paced nicely and the dishes were all really good. Will return in the future.

About the restaurant
A unique blend of the casual and sophisticated, mixing the more sophisticated and nuanced service and cuisine of a fine Ristorante with a casual charm of a classic Italian Bar/Restaurant.

Patricia's philosophy on cuisine, which starts with the finest ingredients and respects the integrity of those ingredients through precise and innovative preparation and cooking. Patricia's passion for the cuisine, wines, and regions of Italy meld perfectly and are reflected in the restaurant. Patricia's reflects not only our shared views on Italian cuisine, but also on respective views on food preparation and service. In tune to the seasons and the special qualities of ingredients, as to be in tune to the special needs of customers and staff, Patricia's sets the standards for a dining experience that is both satisfying and memorable.

We loved Bstro 38 so much that we ate there 2 of the 4 days we were in NY. It was an exceptional experience from start to finish. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. One of the highlights of our dining experience was the exceptional waitstaff. Our server, Starland (not sure I spelled his name correctly) went above and beyond to ensure our evening was nothing short of perfect. His knowledge of the menu was impressive, and his recommendations were spot-on. He was attentive without being intrusive. We had the striped bass special and it was outstanding. And you must order the sangria - best I've had.
