This Japanese style bar and restaurant by Chef Chet Adkins serves up charcoal grilled Izakaya-style skewers made from the best produce and an impressive sake collection and Izakaya-style concoctions. The refined downstairs terrazzo bar and old-style upstairs seating are so easy on the eye and will get you admiring the decor all night long. The price is also not in far from the other Izakaya places nearby, but with such outstanding food and drinks along with such a space that attracts a lively crowd, Jua might just have the edge over the rest.
