Sake

njfreqflyer May 3, 2011 03:10 PM

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: http://komegashi.com/menu/k2/sake_sho...

)

Thanks.

        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).

          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!
