A soothing wine and whisky bar with a Japanese sensibility.
This sleek, narrow space is a mix of modern and traditional. Near the entrance is a well-lit cellar made of white onyx, and inside is a Japanese cedar bar counter. On the menu are top notch drinks: A well curated selection of mostly Old World wines (from $20/glass; $68/bottle) and an exhaustive list of whiskies, with options like Yamazakura blended shot ($20) as well as blowout bottles such as Karuizawa Samurai Cask 1984 ($11,250). Another highlight is sake N 2013 ($2,200), a limited edition junmai daiginjo co-created by Japanese soccer player Nakata Hidetoshi. The bar bites—including duck rillettes ($12) and cheese ($6 per 25g)—are a great complement to the swish sips.
