There were quite a few things to like about this restaurant. Pink napkins! Where do you even find pink napkins, let alone buy them and use them in a restaurant? Kitaro was roomy, open, and filled with light. Plenty of seating for diners and a good size bar. Definitely a current, fun place and they played great music.
Another reason I liked Kitaro, is their effort at being a "green" restaurant. The sushi menus are laminated (not unlike an old Frisch's Big Boy menu but without the pictures of burgers and fries). The customer just places their order right on the menu, using a dry-erase pen. Eco-friendly. I like it.
