Sake Bar Shigure, New York City, April, 2015


Sake Bar Shigure came very highly recommended by just about everyone I had spoken to about it. This Tribeca sake bar’s atmosphere is very relaxed with light jazz filling its exposed brick walls. Shigure features around 40 types of sake, as well as a generous selection of shochu, whiskey and beer. Among their sake selections I found some very hard to find brews such as Hayashi Honten’s Hyakujuro Junmai and Yamahai Junmai Daiginjo (a personal favorite of mine that I almost never see in New York).  We found the staff to be very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and eager to give recommendations.
