    There is a JAS Mart in Gramercy-ish: 34 East 23rd Street, between Park and Madison.

      jas on 23rd is closed

      those ingredients are readily avaiable in most markets and liquor stores.

      if you need a japanese shop theres the place on 59th between 2nd and 3rd

      Just wanted to revive this.... I'm looking for mirin to make a dish tomorrow night, and was hoping to find it somewhere between where I work (west midtown) and where I live (west village - far west/north area) to save time. Any suggestions? Thanks!

        Between midtown and the west village, you can find mirin, miso, cooking sake and most other Japanese ingredients at Han Au Reum on 32nd St (aka Koreatown).

          I found mirin and miso at Gristedes. Not the best brands but they carry it in the asian food section

          In the West Village, you can get Mirin at the Bleeker Street annex of Lobster Place. If you're really far west/north, why not go up a few blocks to Chelsea Market and get both sake at the wine store there and the Lobster Place for mirin...

            At the Lobster Place?? Seriously? Was literally just at Chelsea Market this afternoon and didn't even think of checking there. Thanks so much!
