Sakagura (NYC, US)

Established in 1996, Sakagura has been a pioneer in introducing New Yorkers to the world of sake. We continue to be one of the top sake bars in the United States, attracting countless sake lovers from around the world. Our one-of-a-kind menu consists of over 200 kinds of carefully selected sakes, authentic tapas-style Japanese dishes, and homemade desserts. We are known for being a “hidden jewel” of Manhattan also because of our unique and hidden location. Come find us and transport yourself to Tokyo.

 By hidden, they are not kidding! You will find Sakagura at the basement level of an office building in Midtown that I walked past twice before entering. One of my close friends of 10 years treated me to a delicious dinner here to kick-off my birthday week! Two new table neighbors and almost 3 hours later, we walked out as happy as two girls who ate their way through the menu could be – aka, very happy 😛
