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.

Really romantic and lovely restaurant that's great for a date night. Low lighting helps the mood! I recommend just ordering a bunch of different dishes and just sharing them rather than just ordering a single entree and appetizer for each person. You get to try out a lot more of the dishes and appreciate the Asian fusion type of food that Sakamai provides. You must get the egg on egg on egg dish!
