Downtown Crossing’s swank Millennium Tower houses this high-end izakaya from San Francisco celeb-chef Michael Mina, a posh place to enjoy fancy yakitori, sushi, sashimi and Wagyu steaks. Among its assets is a stellar sake program from Mayuka Yatomi, a genteel, engaging, never-supercilious sommelier equally adept at guiding connoisseurs and novices. Alongside silky-smooth general manager Linchul Shin, she’s one of a team of polished hospitality pros that make PABU’s skyscraping prices easier to swallow.
