Izakaya Gets Three Bells

Izakaya at the Borgata
Michael Schulson’s Izakaya at the Borgata gets a ringing endorsement from Craig LaBan.

With its casually stylish ambience and ambitious small-plate take on Japanese pub fare, this is a departure from traditional casino fine-dining. And, judging from the stunning parade of dishes, from the crispy nori-rice cracker topped with spicy tuna to the silky kabocha cheesecake, Izakaya is also a smashing debut for a familiar name we’re likely to be hearing more from.
