Benemon is perfect for when you need a spot where you can potentially spend around $20 on dinner, and you don’t feel like doing so in the frozen food aisle at Trader Joes. This neighborhood Japanese place specializes in rice bowls and curries with things like pork katsu, eel, and popcorn chicken, and it’s a charming space with brick walls and an excessive number of light bulbs hanging from the ceiling. If you want to have a drink, there’s also a great selection of sake.
