Fresh Japanese Cooking, Inside the Box

The owner of Tanoshi, an uptown sushi spot whose surprisingly good bargain omakase won over Chowhounds in spring, switched things up when he took over the neighboring storefront. Tanoshi Bento, as you'd expect, specializes in combo meals of fresh, home-style Japanese cooking. Delicately battered tempura (pictured) and juicy kara-age chicken are two standouts.
