Unlike every other Japanese restaurant in America, Kiraku strives to deliver a genuine izakaya experience. By emulating the style of a modern izakaya popular in Japan, Kiraku hopes to spread the wonders of this style of eating to as many people as possible. Opening in July 2011, Kiraku, which literally means to relax, wishes to ease the stress of daily life by providing beer, sake, small plates, and the atmosphere to enjoy company and conversation. When you first sit down and receive a warm oshibori towel, it will surely refresh your spirits and set the tone for your meal.
