I don't think Yakitori Taisho is one of the best yakitori places in the city, but it is decent with reasonable prices. The yakitori sets are only okay (comparatively to other places), but the specials can be good. Chicken teriyaki is mediocre, the okonomiyaki is...More

East Village

which offers plenty of unique small businesses
