Village Voice's Description

This sleek Lower East Side sake lounge is all about minimalism and clean lines when it comes to the decor, but complexity when it comes to the menu. The cozy lounge—complete with fireplace—claims to be New York's first dedicated sake lounge. We don't know about first, but they sure are dedicated to the Japanese rice wine. They offer a variety of styles as well as advice in the choosing, but the real draw is the signature sake, plum wine, and shochu-infused cocktails. The "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" involves a blowtorch.

    You MUST order the eggs on eggs on eggs - uni and white sturgeon caviar on a bed of scrambled eggs. One of the best things I've ever eaten. The steak for 2 is also delicious.

    A long and interesting sake menu with craft cocktails and smart, intricate small plates far beyond usual bar grub.

    The egg on egg on egg is crazy decadent. And they will overpour your sake on purpose...ask them about it
