Japanese eatery in a semi-secret setting
Japanese · East 40s · $$
The Zagat Review
A “portal to Tokyo” “hidden away” beneath an “anonymous” office building near Grand Central, this Japanese izakaya couples “sophisticated” small plates with an “amazing array” of “superb” sakes in a “calm” , bamboo-rich setting; given “dainty” -by-design portions, be prepared to “spend more than you expect.”

Zagat Mentions of Sakagura

My boyfriend and I came here for the lunch tasting course with sake pairing. The wait staff was incredibly excited for our experience and really kind to us. The food (especially impressed with the sashimi course) and sake were fantastic. At one point, I got food happy and spilled some sauce on my blouse. One of the bus boys immediately spotted me in my awkwardness and brought me a wet towel and offered me club soda. All in all: great food, great service. Can't wait to come back.

Best. Sake. Ever!!! (Outside of Japan that is) Honestly this is the cutest place! I love speakeasy/hidden types of vibes and this place sure delivered! Food was amazing, really anything you order is packed with taste, freshness and just awesome flavor. Finish the night with a couple flavored sakes for an unforgettable experience.

There is little for me to say about this place except that I always find myself deeply satisfied every time I visit. Don't be fooled by the fact this styled in the manner of an izakaya. The variety of dishes on the menu combined with the precise execution and presentation puts even some of the more high profile restaurants and established restaurants to shame. Not to mention one of the most noteworthy aspects, the expansive sake list. In short, great food, great drinks. Were the food cheaper this place would receive a 6 out of 5.
