Donburiya feels more like a bar where someone might stand on a table than it does a calm sit-down restaurant, but that’s part of the fun of this casual Japanese izakaya near Times Square. Almost everything on the menu costs less than $15, including their specialty donburi bowls, massive onigiri, and $9 carafes of hot sake. If you’re looking for a rowdy spot after a Broadway show, Donburiya should be at the top of your list (they stay open until 2:30am).
