Skip the bentos. Ignore the sashimi and nigiri. Jinbei does both great—spectacular, even—but the rule for ordering food here is to embrace the unfamiliar. The more exotic-sounding it is, the more it'll dazzle. Jinbei features dishes that go so far beyond teriyaki and California rolls; you'll need some assistance deciphering what most of them are. Order what the staff will tell you is raw octopus, and you'll discover bracing wasabi lubricating slippery tentacles that slide down your gullet. Marvel at the simplicity and softness of braised squid cooked with kabocha squash. And if you've never had unagi in any other state than lacquered in sticky sauce on a caterpillar roll, the vinegared eel and cucumber here is a must.
