Slurp away at this Arts District noodle shop. Chef Teiichi Sakurai, formerly of Tei Tei and Teppo; bar manager Yosuke Fukuda; and general manager Ayako Thompson give humble handmade soba with dips like Texas pecan a pedestal and provide customers with unexpected libations like Japanese vodka. Patrons at the rooftop lounge can enjoy these and other specialty tipples in the sleek dining room or while gazing at the downtown vistas on Tei-An's rooftop lounge.
