Subtle, inexpensive Japanese bites from a former chef at Abri (and so much easier to get in). We ordered second rounds of many of the half dozen small plates on the menu, and found plenty to drink on the compact list of natural wines. It’s a tiny place with only 14 seats, so don’t come with a giant group, and book ahead even though the vibe is humble.

Reviews of interest

The New York Times (2015) “The chef Haruka Casters plays up seasonal small plates (sake-steamed clams with cabbage, teriyaki burgers).”

Not Drinking Poison in Paris (2014) “6036 bills itself as izakaya, or Japanese bar food, but this is a ruse: it’s actually a modest and sincere gastronomic experience, helmed by chef Haruka Casters, formerly sous-chef at 10ème arrondissement tasting-menu destination Abri.”
