Looking state-wide for a bar, lounge, or restaurant where they offer a variety of sake (and perhaps shochu). Hopefully by the glass as well as by the flask and bottle. I am not looking for retail liquor stores.

The only place that comes to my mind is Komegashi Too at Newport in Jersey City (which, by the way, has a very nice selection:

      Thanks! Raku looks very interesting. It seems there's just a tease of their sake offering on their web-site. It might be a good place to visit after some shopping at Mitsuwa when I don't have time for a trip into the City.

        I can't wait to try Raku either! My favorite thing in Japan were the Izakayas...I know it won't be the same but something is better than nothing!

    2. has anyone tried sushi lounge - they have a few locations

          Locations in Hoboken, Morristown, and Totowa... Looking at the on-line menus, Morristown and Totowa appear to have the same 12 (cold) sake on offer. Hoboken lists 8 (cold) sake. (Each also lists 4-5 hot sake, which aren't so much of interest to me, anyway).
