But as we were happily drinking and noshing away on the fresh Mediterranean-style bar food, the owner invited us behind the hidden door in the bookcases and I began to appreciate the Ebisubashi’s true genius. Beyond was a secret cave!

The secret room: where many problems of the world are solved.

Nobody goes away hungry or thirsty. There’s a nice selection of small plates, good wine, and full bar.
