Danji's Hooni Kim Hits Tori Shin Early for the Good Stuff

New York City is home to a lot of restaurants, and among them are hidden gems the majority of New Yorkers just aren't unearthing. To help guide us to these potential discoveries, we've enlisted some of our city's many food luminaries to share with us their under the radar recommendations for Dining Confidential.

2011_11_torishin1.jpgChef Hooni Kim of Danji praises Upper East Side yakitori staple Tori Shin.

"I get my yakitori fix at Tori Shin. It's usually filled with Japanese businessmen and the decor, service, etc give it a real authentic feel. I like to watch the grill chefs twirl the skewers so rhythmically it looks like they're playing an instrument. My favorites are the following skewers: skin, gizzard, and wing. If you get there early enough you can try the specials which include knee bone, cartilage, hearts, and livers."
