Kirakuya Sake Bar
Posted by anna on 04/17/2012
My colleagues brought me there one day, and I was so impressed with its food, decoration and ambiance. Staffs were kind, friendly and the food was real Japanese. If you are looking for the well-known Japanese dishes such as Tonkatsu or Sushi, there are many other restaurants/bars in NYC. But small plates going well with Sake? Kirakuya knows what they should be like. Their check-in sake tasting event was really nice, too. I tried the sake of April (Kuroushi), and liked its smooth taste. I'll probably try their lunch menu next time. (I'd love to try their Kaisen-dong so bad!) The place is not loud, so it'd be a good spot for your business meeting or a date.

This place can be hard to find but if you are in the location and craving Japanese food that's better than your average teriyaki chicken over rice then this might be a place worth visiting. Located on the second floor this place started as a bar but opened up for lunch. I discovered this place after spotting their lunch menu pasted outside near the entrance and have fallen in love with this place. So far I have only come to this place for lunch but plan to try their dinner menu. Their food is fresh, cooked perfectly, and well presented. The restaurant is dimly lit inside and has a very lovely atmosphere with music playing in the background. Their menu is small, mostly contains Donburi (rice bowls), lunch sets served with rice, and noodle. As far as I know they do not serve rolls or sushi but there are a few lunch items which come with sashimi. This place is not cheap but for the quality and food it's worth coming to on occasion or if you have guests over.
