Tiki Tatsu-Ya

The most fun seat in town is in the Nest at this totally tiki lounge where the bar menu reads like a treasure map. Wacky and wonderful, drinks glow phosphorescent green, arrive in a cloud of smoke, or sail in on a wooden boat. There’s an awesome amount of detail—bespoke cobra glasses with the Tatsu crest, a ceiling of Japanese glass floats—and the food is good for more than just soaking up rum. Think slightly fermented poi with a subtle coconut note, squid rings stuffed with curry-infused greens, and deconstructed crab rangoons with furikake-topped wonton crisps. Only house-made spam, served cold in a mango shell, failed to impress.
