Inko Nito is a Japanese restaurant in the Arts District, and while the massive space is very pretty to look at, the food is very mediocre. The menu is robata-style, meaning everything is slow-cooked in a giant charcoal grill in the middle of the restaurant, which, again, is very pretty to look at. There were highlights like the beef short rib and coconut soft serve at the end, but ultimately, there isn’t anything here that we would drive back to the Arts District for. Inko Nito is not a terrible restaurant, but it seems more geared towards big groups of club-goers looking for familiar food before a night out than anything else.
