Looking for a place to hangout? You can “tamaru” at Tamari, the first sake bar in Park Slope.  The name comes from the Japanese word meaning to hangout and the low-key bar and restaurant is intended to provide a spot for artistic-types to do just that. With an atmosphere inspired by Tapas bars, it is an ideal place for an evening with friends. Start early with the “Happy Sake Hour” specials or a Japanese Mojito.  Follow this with a few of owner/chef Kenichiro Kikuchi’s imaginative tapas and rolls like the Beef Tataki or Crispy Curry Tempura Roll. Put it all together and you have a delightful gathering where the sake is good, the cocktails creative and the food original. 

Beef Tataki

A delightful combination of Japanese and Korean tastes. Grilled beef is marinated in Gochujiang, then covered in a sauce made with Kimchi, and served with arugula, carrots, bokchoi, and cucumber.
