May 2016

Featured Sake ($18/flight)

Born Junmai Daiginjo Suroka | Gold |Fukui 

Exceptionally rich, mouth-coating, succulent & fragrant. This Daiginjo is not carbon-filtered, retaining a gold hue and more powerful flavors. Born is a Japanese “cult” producer of exceptional quality.

Hakkaisan Junmai Ginjo| Eight Peaks | Niigata

Very delicate, dry & complex with aromas of fruit, rose petal, vanilla and almonds.

Tentaka Junmai| Hawk in the Heavens |Tochigi

Slightly yeasty with roasted walnut complexity; crisp and dry, the flavors are dominated by mixed nuts, fresh cut grass and earthiness.

Shirakawago Junmai Sasanigori | Shirakawago Village | Gifu

A lighter and dryer style of nigori, with a finer, more delicate cloud of rice. Robust and nutty.

Featured Wine


Ron Rubin Pinot Noir, Sonoma, California
Gorgeous Russian River Estate Fruit has a bright nose of cherry and plum, which leads the way to hints of cocoa layered with spice aromas. The bouquet is rounded out with toasty vanilla oak, balanced with berry flavors for an elegant finish.
— $8.95/glass

Jean Sablenay Sauvignon Blanc, Loire, France
This Touraine Sauvignon is a perfect alternative to Sancerre or Pouilly Fume. Expressive like a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc with its crispiness, but more of a green apple, gooseberry finish. Whiff of wet slate/ stone on the nose.
— $7.95/glass
