Serving exclusive sake since 1996, Sakagura boasts the best sake list in NYC with over 200 varieties. Don’t worry if the choices overwhelm you. Wait staff will bring samples to assist in making the best choice according to your taste. Small tapas-style dishes such as Buta no kakuni – Sakagura’s special stewed diced pork – are perfect accompaniments especially during summer! Sakes range in quality from the full-bodied, elegant and aromatic Kachoi Gesseki ($23/glass containing 17 % alcohol) to a milder Miyasaka containing 12 % alcohol ($7/glass).
