This dimly lit, sleek sake lounge features rice spirits, Japanese beers and small plates from chef Takanori Akiyama (Lan). Sip on a glass of junmai or nigori sake, or opt for one of the cocktails made with shochu. To eat, there is sashimi and Asian-inflected comfort food dishes, like scrambled eggs with caviar and uni, duck-fat-fried chicken and bone marrow with sansho spice butter.
