Harris Salat and Tadashi Ono's Japanese street food restaurant Ganso Yaki is firing up its grills tonight right near Barclays Center. The duo already runs the well-liked Ganso ramen-ya nearby. At Yaki, they plan to take "inspiration from alleyway shops, backstreet restaurants, pushcart vendors," and the mom-and-pop places found in the rough Tokyo neighborhood Shitamachi, they say on their site.

The Menu: The menu here are broken down into categories like "street" and "special grill." Expect dishes like trout grilled on a cedar plank and served with yuzu kosho oil, whole grilled Japanese squid with a ginger-soy marinade, and an Osaka-style cabbage and pork belly savory pancake. There are also tempuras, lots of vegetarian options, and a few sobas, including one with duck breast and a dashi broth. Yakitori are traditionally eaten with sake and beer, and the drinks list offers both domestic and Japanese brews. There are also several sakes plus a few snacks, like house-fermented squid, that can be ordered alongside.
