i'm going to the japan society tomorrow for a film and figured i might as well get all thematic and grab some food to match after - i've wanted to try both these places - any opinions?
aburiya kinnosuke is on e 45th
sakagura is on e 43rd
btw if you do get into sakagura, make sure to try their desserts, their pastry chef is excellent and seemingly unknown for some reason
The food is better at Aburiya; the sake is much better at Sakagura. If you drink enough, you'll think the food is better there, too.
Atm. if very different. Aburiya is brightly lit, more restauranty in feel. Sakagura is dark and sort of feels like the (fairly nice-looking) hole in the ground it is.
Strongly disagree. Aburiya Kinnosuke is a decent catch-all, robatayaki place with a broad menu of standards- including seasonal and special items. But Sakagura is much more seasonally driven, focused "ryouri"/ cuisine restaurant. I would go to Aburiya with colleagues, but Sakagura with friends.
