Hagi and the like
So last night I experienced Hagi Sake Bar for the first time. It is everything I could have hoped for and more: reasonably priced booze, adventurous food that tastes good and a great atmosphere (even at 1:30 am).
My question is this: are there any other places like this in Manhattan? It doesn't have to be Japanese, but I would like to depart from the traditional pub / bar cuisine.
Any suggestions or ideas are greatly appreciated!
