Murasaki Sake Lounge

After 22 years as Cafe Shino, this Gold Coast stalwart got a makeover and has emerged as a sake lounge, complete with two dozen varieties of rice wine, a private karaoke room and a menu of otsumami, traditional Japanese small plates (we're fans of the crispy-edged hot-dog bites, plummy baby octopus, spicy salmon hand rolls and tofu-topped udon noodles). For a primer on sake, ask manager Kerry Tamura, who's happy to steer you in the right direction.

One of my favorite low key spots in the city. Tucked away on the backside of the Streeterville, I have stopped in a few times and had some great sushi. Its a quaint little spot, never to crowded and the service is alway good.
