Ryu - Meatpacking District Izakaya and Cocktails
File this under collaborations we didn’t see coming. A member of the Fatty Crew and reality TV star Scott Disick’s intimate izakaya serves crispy tempuras, oysters, tartares, and skewers from chef Chris Whaley. Deep yellow leather booths give out strong MPD vibes, but the yuzu-spiked cocktails and punch are potent enough to lubricate lingering misgivings.
Sun.-Wed., 5 p.m.-2 a.m.; Thurs.-Sat., 5 p.m.-4 a.m.
