Moonrise Izakaya opened on the Upper West Side last week with a big, cartoony splash, thanks to Japanese muralist Shiro, who covered pretty much every available surface, inside and out, with her signature, manga-style characters. The bathroom, in particular, is pretty amazing. It was a shrewd (and fun!) design decision; change doesn't come often to this particular stretch of Amsterdam Avenue, and Shiro's spray-paint aesthetic makes Moonrise feel both fresh and exciting and comfortably familiar. Like it wouldn't have seemed out of place here back in the early-1980s, when I lived a few blocks away.
