Udon with chicken at Japon Bistro

Don’t let the home-lettered signs and uninviting, tunnel-like space dissuade you from discovering this fine and eclectic Japanese spot with a lively sushi bar and a devout following. The knowledgeable young staff can’t wait to introduce you to the live sea urchin, the sake collection and the terrific izakaya, including such things as salmon carpaccio, Hawaiian-style poke and beef kushiyaki. The udon is one of the best around, and the choices for vegetarians go beyond the norm. Regulars include families with edamame-eating toddlers and¬†Caltech foodies discussing nanotechnology and black holes.
