If you’re planning a date night in the East Village, consider this Japanese spot on 10th Street in the East Village where you can stir thinly-sliced wagyu ribeye into a bubbling pot on your table and then dip it in ponzu. Each shabu shabu or sukiyaki meal comes with assorted vegetables, salad, rice, ice cream, and your choice of two proteins (all the proteins are priced individually, ranging from $29 to $65). It’s not a huge place, so we’d suggest making a reservation here ahead of time.
