Is Sakagura a bad place for non-sushi eaters?

My SO loves Japanese food and I was thinking of taking him to Sakagura for his birthday with his family. Two people are not sushi eaters though. Are there any cooked foods on the menu they might enjoy? Previously we have all gone together to Nobu and EN Japanese and they were able to find food they liked.

  1. sakagura has plenty of non-sushi items, both more traditional japanese cooked food and more new-japanese concoctions, that are awesome so you guys should be ok.

    1. Sakagura isn't really a "sushi place" at all. It's a "sake place" and has food that goes with sake. A few of these items may be sashimi, or somtimes sushi (depending on the specials), but most of the menu are cooked foods and salads, from old Japanese bar food favorites to some innovative stuff. The desserts are also interesting and good. But you should be aware that it is a place to eat small dishes of food, drink, order some more. The main thing there, of course, is the wide range of sakes available, as you will see when you look at the menu (which is primarily a sake list with food on the back).
