About Butai: Welcome to Butai, a traditional yet innovative Robata restaurant. In Japanese, the word "robata" means "cooking by the fireside," and refers to the centuries-old country style cooking of Northern Japanese Fishermen. Evenings in coastal villages found fishermen cooking their catch over an open fire, then sharing among themselves by passing food on oars from boat to boat.
Our menu honors the Robata tradition of sharing and sampling. Appetizer-size portions allow you to try a variety of authentic Robata dishes. Delicious possibilities are limited only by the whims of your palate and the size of your appetite. You can order anything from any section of the menu at any time. There is no order to this experience - enjoy the free-style dinning however you choose.
