    Nigata Pref. Nigatashi Chuou-ku Higashiodori 2-3-152F
    This popular izakaya (Japanese-style bar restaurant) has many fans from outside of Niigata Prefecture, who come for the delicious foods and drinks of Niigata. The restaurant serves mainly Japanese-style dishes, full of the deliciousness of Niigata. The ingredients for these dishes include local seafood bought directly from local fishermen, and Niigata vegetables from contractor farms, which the restaurant’s staff visit personally to buy their goods. The most popular items on the menu are the seasonal locally-caught sashimi, and Tochio City’s specialty, Jumbo fried tofu. The interior of the restaurant was renovated, leaving the old beams and pillars in place, giving it a relaxing, nostalgic atmosphere. The nearest station is Niigata Station.

    何を食べても美味しいですが魚介系が美味しいですし、新潟の郷土料理もあります。締めの一品として五郎めしがとてもお勧めです。 締めでみんなでシェアして食べいつも大満足です。

    Nigata Pref. Nigatashi Chuou-ku Benten 1-2-4 Ramada Hotel (former Tokyu Inn) Building 1F
    This Japanese-style restaurant and bar is located approximately one minute on foot from the JR Niigata Station. Its veteran chefs serve dishes that can only be found in Niigata. The blackthroat perch and Murakami beef, freshly caught local fish and carefully selected ingredients from all across the country come together to make dishes that go perfectly with beer locally produced in Niigata. The flavorful Murakami marbled beef steak and salt-grilled blackthroat perch are specialties of the restaurant. The interior of the restaurant is a gently lit, calming space. There are private rooms with sunken kotatsu and tatami flooring, which are also convenient for dinner parties.

    附近太多美食,幾天來都吃到很棒的餐點,這裡比較起來只能說實在太太太普通了,又不便宜,對它的霜降村上牛期望太高,CP值很低..

    Ichiya located in Higashiodori, Chuo Ward, Niigata City is an izakaya (Japanese-style pub). It offers menu items such as sashimi and sushi using fresh seafood sourced from local rivers. All the menu items with a concept of delicious ingredients can be enjoyed at the best prices to the utmost.

    I had dinner with colleagues in this restaurant in Niigata. They served nabe, sashimi, sushi, tempura and other typical Japanese dishes. Nice atmosphere and good taste.

    飲み会で使いました。 初めて行ったお店だったんですが、男女ともにベトナム料理美味しくいただきました。 タイ料理とかに少し近い感じでしょうか? 個人的なお勧めは生春巻きです。これはまあどこのお店でも間違いないですが(笑)

    店内入ると左側にカウンター席が並び、右側にはテーブル席が並んでます。カウンター席には、1人できているお客さんも多く、店員と会話を楽しみながら飲んでいるようでした。ワイン1500円飲み放題で赤白スパークリングの三種他生ハムを使ったメニューも美味しかったです。気軽に入れる洋風居酒屋さんで、新潟出張の際は、時々寄ってます。
