Nana is a slick, modern izakaya specializing in the regional cuisine of Kyoto, obanzai-ryori. Many of the dishes here incorporate or are built around lovely Kyoto heirloom vegetables, and the menu also offers a surprising number of chicken dishes.

Some highlights include the nicely fatty grilled pork on stones (grilled at your table) and the grilled sea bream with black pepper. Deep-fried anago eel cheese rolls were less successful, and the various herb and vegetable salads are passable without being very exciting. Drinks include ten popular brands of craft sake, although we didn't notice any from Kyoto. Budget around Y4000 for food and drink.
