New eats: Shinn

I’ll get to the point: Shinn is really good, already one of the best izakaya in town. The vibe is uber chic and sexy without trending too garish. Restraint: It’s in the pebbled black walls, the river rocks in the bathroom basins, the one splash of color in front of the door.

That red squiggle means “heart” — the only sign that Shinn is related to the bento shop Kokoro-Tei just down Beretania. Same owners. Kokoro = heart = Shinn. This red heart, you step on when you walk in the door. Sassy!
